Gardner's most famous shot was probably, " Death of a Rebel Sharpshooter". And what's so cool about it is the rifle in the shot was a prop that Gardner carried, its not even a rebel rifle. Some claim that he even went as far as to drag a body to that location to set up the shot. So I guess Gardner could be considered one of the first pictorialist. I know I like his work better than I do Brady's.. at least Brady's later wet plate collodion work. Brady's early work when he was still doing dags was quite good. Robert
