In Alan T. Nolan’s work, Lee Considered: General Robert E. Lee and Civil War History, Nolan reexamines historical sources, including Lee’s official and personal correspondence and many other writings on Lee. Nolan states, without going too far into his own background, that he is “suspicious of saints,” and this suspicion is what led Nolan’s desire to review long held beliefs about Lee. Nolan examines Lee’s views on slavery and points out that Lee believed that slavery benefited the “African,” associating the black race with degradation and believed that the races were best separated. Nolan argues that as a general, Lee, though brutally effective on the battlefield, lacked an understanding of national strategy. Nolan would have readers believe
War takes effect on almost every aspect of a community. It can alter the way we think about fellow people, it can create prejudices or injustices, it can destroy huge amounts of land, culture, and other tangible parts of a community and it can drastically drop the number of people within a community. Timothy Findley makes a point to show his readers the amount of deaths have occurred as one reads the novel. Effect this has is to remind people that war is not simply an event in which many good stories have came out of it, it is a time of tragedy and the author makes a point to highlight the importance of recognizing the number of men and women who have dedicated their lives to defending their country. Thousands of people die in the war and hundreds
He was known for his work with shells, vegetables, abstract nudes, natural rock and tree formations. His portraits were frequently framed filling and sharp. His photography seemed luxurious with abstract shapes and heavy contrast. Weston was considered a Modernist photographer as well as known for "straight photography" which was the renunciation of manipulation of the photographic procedure. He wanted to capture a realistic portrayal of life rather than take a more artistic, soft-focused route. Photos like those of Pictorialism, which was popular at that

Jan Vermeer was a Dutch painter who fascinated by the use of light in his paintings. “Unlike Caravaggio and Rembrandt, who used light for dramatic emphasis, Vermeer concentrated on the way light reveals each color, texture, and detail of the physical world” (Preble 307). Vermeer
Countee Cullen (1903-1946) was an influential African American poet largely remembered for his contribution to the Harlem Renaissance, a period from the early 1900’s to the mid 1930’s in which black culture thrived. Artists such as Langston Hughes and Louis Armstrong were integral in the creative revitalization and, while Cullen is perhaps lesser known, his work is no less enduring (Harlem).
Emmet Gowin, whose photography as well as style has been created through little manipulation, will be further explored. During Gowin’s life, photography changed significantly, but he stuck to the use of the darkroom to create his photographs that are unique and visually appealing (Smith). Emmet Gowin’s photography is often influenced by artists whose names are Eugène Atget, Walker Evans, and Harry Callahan (Gowin 54). Harry Callahan, whom was Gowin’s teacher at Rhode Island School of Design, was particularly influencing for Gowin’s work (Smith; Gowin 54). Gowin likely used similar techniques to Callahan, because that is who he was taught by. Through inferences this would make it so that much of the technologies that did come out during Gowin’s life, he didn’t use

Since the start of his professional career, LaChapelle's work has attracted the attention of many other artists, celebrities, journalists, and regular people. I first noticed his work on advertisements in magazines several years ago. I immediately felt drawn to his images- they are photographs I could stare at for hours, playing out in my head the story each photograph is telling and what it says about the character
William Klein's creative process simply boils down to him simply traveling the world with his camera to take multiple pictures of something or someone that's piqued his interest. He, along with many other photographers, follow-up with searching through his contact sheets and/or memory cards for that one photograph. After sitting down and watching some interviews people have had with Klein, I learned that he doesn’t follow traditional technique as he was self-taught and simply did this, film, graphic design work, and more because it held his interest and was fun to him. Due to the fact Klein was able to make his career enjoyable for himself, it allowed him to capture images of various situations with ease—not one for being picky about his light
