Partners With the Sun
South Carolina Photographers, 1840-1940
Dividing the century into historical periods, Teal groups the photographers by the towns in which they operated studios. Additionally, he profiles amateur photographers who participated in significant projects, such as those who produced the more than three thousand photographs taken of the Penn School on St. Helena Island in Beaufort County. In response to the increasing interest in female photographers, African American photographers, photography as a business, and the production of picture postcards, stereographs, and panoramas, Teal devotes a chapter to each of these topics. He highlights local and national events of the century and chronicles advances in photographic technology, to place the photographers in their historical contexts.
