Alexander Gardner: The greatest photographer of the American Civil War, and the most significant (with associate Timothy O’ Sullivan) photographer of his era.

Walt Whitman was prescient in his estimation of Gardner …”He saw farther than his camera …saw more …”

Gardner was a visionary whose art reaches us in our age with significant  force and resonance.
