Mathew Brady Photo Sold at Nate D. Sanders

Mathew Brady is sometimes called the father of photojournalism as he was one of America’s earliest photographers. He is known for documenting thousands of images from the Civil War and with the use of a mobile darkroom he was able to share these images with the public. Mathew Brady also took portraits of many public figures such as John Quincy Adams and Abraham Lincoln. Brady also pioneered daguerreotypy, the most common photographic processing technique from about 1840 to 1860, in the states.

We recently auctioned some Mathew Brady original photos. Details are below.
