Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964251108, Paperback)

PHOTOGRAPHER .. UNDER FIRE is the story of one of the early entrepreneurs of photography. Today daguerreotypes & unfaded portraits by George S. Cook, PHOTOGRAPHER, ex-associate of Matthew Brady, prove his claim he could "find beauty in any face". From within Fort Sumter, George S. Cook, CIVIL WAR HISTORIAN, captured his famous picture of ironclads in action and the burst of an exploding shell. This Conneticut Yankee set out in his late teens to travel the Mississippi to New Orleans where he began, as a street artist, his career which would include all phases of the art of photography. Family diaries, photo collections, recipe books, letters and papers collected by his grandaughter provided the basis for beginning this book. Endnotes, bibliography, index & Cook's photographs, some never before published.
