Melting Point reflects over 20 years of Jeff Jacobson’s observations of what he describes as “a meltdown period, when old norms of politics, religion and even photography are changing…. In working from the paradox of a curious melding of beauty and fear these photographs emerged.”

While photographing the American presidential campaign in 1976 Jacobson began using color film—Kodachrome, particularly—in innovative ways, branching out from the black-and-white norms that dominated documentary-style photography at the time.
