Prince George's County Photographer




As a photographer I am most impressed by James Presley Ball, a 19th Century photographer who paved the way and set the highest standards for his craft.

James Presley Ball from Willis Book

J.P. Ball, Daguerrean and Studio Photographer

J.P. Ball at one time was considered the best photographer in the Cincinnati area and later one of the best and most successful in the nation, yet few people have ever heard of him. Prior to this study this writer’s knowledge of famous African American photographers was limited to James Van der Zee and those who came afterwards such as Gordon Parks, Monetta J. Sleet. Though not renown today for his work, Ball might very well be worthy of being a peer to other better known photographers such as Matthew Brady and others. It seems that Ball’s peers are often limited to other African American photographers such as Augusta Washington, Daniel Freeman, and Jules Lion. A closer look at his work as revealed in the book J.P. Ball, Daguerrean and Studio Photographer clearly shows that this was a photographer who has left a treasure.
