Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0525652086, Hardcover)

African-American photographers played an almost invisible role in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, their contribution to the art form largely overlooked and barely documented. Though this book is intended for ages 11 and up, Sullivan does not patronize young readers; he excels at placing his subjects in the context of their times, filling in the background with fine brushstrokes. James Van Der Zee, the best known black photographer, is excluded in favor of important but comparatively obscure names like pioneer daguerreotyper James P. Ball--whose studio rivaled Mathew Brady's--and portraitist Addison Scurlock.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:03 -0400)

Surveys the work of African-American professional photographers from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century: Jules Lion, Augustus Washington, James P. Ball, the Goodridge Brothers, Cornelius M. Battey, and Addison Scurlock.
