Hal B. Fullerton (1857-1935) was a self-taught photographer whose works document life on Long Island in the early years of the 20th century. As a special agent and agriculturalist for the Long Island Rail Road, Fullerton’s photographs were reproduced in promotional material that encouraged tourism and farming on the Island. Born in Ohio, Fullerton worked in New York before moving to Long Island, settling first in Brooklyn, and then progressively east to Queens, Huntington, East Setauket, and finally Middle Island. In Suffolk County, Fullerton and his wife established experimental farms for the L.I.R.R., contributing to the area’s agricultural development. His photographs capture the picturesque, agrarian charm of the Island, while also revealing a esthetic conventions seen in contemporary painting of the period.
