you know that before 1839, photographs were unheard of? Can you imagine?
But then the camera came into use but it wasn't the point and click cameras
that we know today. The cameras were very complicated to use and
it took someone with great skill to take great pictures. In this
book, you'll be introduced to some of the best. Not only did they
take great pictures, they took important pictures. Pictures that
helped change the world. Learn about Matthew Brady who brought the
Civil War home to people through his work. And Lewis Hines who spent
years photographing children working in unbearable conditions to show the
plight of these young workers. And Dorothea Lange who showed the
effects of the Great Depression on the citizens of the United States.
