Now living in Maryland, but born in New York, photographer Jan W. Faul has traveled across the United States to portray Civil War battlefields and to trace the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather, who fought in the Civil War. He has spent 41 years photographing battlefields, historic sites, and the hand of man in both the United States and in Europe. Faul has photographed 100+ Civil War locales, stretching from Pennsylvania to New Mexico. His quest is to help preserve our memories of the landscapes, small towns, and homes that were such a vibrant part of American culture a century and a half ago. He has been awarded grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Arts, the Scheide Foundation, and others. His work is in the collections of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, the Albin 0. Kuhn Library & Gallery at UMBC, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and more than fifty others. In 2011, Jan Faul was awarded six Bronze Medals in the Epson International Pano Awards.
