Biographical Note for Fredricks, Charles Deforest. :

For twenty years in the mid-to-late 19th century, the photography studio of Charles D. Fredericks was the grandest and most chic gallery in New York City. Success in New York gave Fredricks the chance to travel. On one of his travels to Havana, Cuba, Fredricks began to document the city and later opened up a studio. Fredricks continued to add to his portfolio until the late 19th century. With a focus on the growth of cities in South America and Cuba, Fredricks also shot many prominent politicians, Civil War heroes, and actors. Leaving behind an indelible mark in the world of photography, Charles D. Fredricks passed away in 1894 in New York City.
