A professor of history at Mount Saint Vincent University, M. Brook Taylor has become an expert in the banks fishery and schooners at the turn of the 20th century. He is the curator of an exhibition for the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (Halifax, Nova Scotia) that presents Frederick William Wallace's photographs to the public for the first time. He has given lectures about Frederick William Wallace in Canada and Japan, and has been published in the Journal of Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society. In A Camera on the Banks, Taylor presents the story of a fishery on the brink of change and the pioneering photojournalist who documented it so lovingly.
