  • Taschen has just published Camera Work: The Complete Illustrations 1903-1917,with a text by Pam Roberts of the Royal Photographic Society. Color enhances the quality of these illustrations, small though they may be. Selected texts from Camera Work are reproduced in facsimile.
  • Collectors may be interested in the December l997 catalogue issued by the Lee Gallery, Winchester, MA featuring Camera Work and other photogravures. The Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York City is another good source for this kind of material.

  • The New Pictorialist Society, while no longer producing a periodical, is still functioning.  This organization's publications are a key source for early techniques.

Alfred StieglitzWho Was Alfred Stieglitz?

Photographer extraordinaire, publisher, critic, and patron - dedicated his life to all that was fresh and vital in the arts.  His first love and sustaining occupation was photography, and in addition to his own work, he inspired and promoted a group of the most vigorous and original photographers in the country, known as the Photo-Secession.  Their very name suggested rebellion and regeneration, and for ten heady years, beginning in 1902, this circle of American artists waged a battle to prove that photography was no longer a handmaiden of science and commerce, but the equal of any of the fine arts.
