Description: Brady at Harper’s Ferry, 2 views C. 1862 by Gardner. The label credits Holms & Woodbury. No. 654, “Harper’s Ferry Gap,” and 644, “Ruins of Harper’s Ferry Arsenal, October, 1862.” Mathew Brady can be seen in both views looking out, recognizable by his clothing and hat. Brady appears in a number of views made by his camera artists. He is present but also not present, because he is not in portrait mode, but as someone who is looking out at the same scene that the camera is seeing. I think he is marking the scene not only as a “document” but also as a product of his vision.
