"While Magnum photographers looked out at the world, another group of European photographers looked inward. Led by Otto Steinert (1991.1056), the movement known as Subjektive Fotografie emphasized the photographer's ability to imbue his subject with personal and aesthetic meaning through photographic means—perspective and point of view; the use of the close-up; tonal rendering; defamiliarizing the subject through negative printing and solarization; and experimentation with time exposure. Such techniques emphasized the role of the artist in creating meaning for photographs beyond the factual reality of the objects before the camera. Although this is fundamentally true of all creative photography, Subjektive Fotografie made the demonstration of this principle a primary goal. The movement held three exhibitions, in 1951, 1954, and 1958, that included a wide range of work from artists of many different countries. Its ideas spread throughout Europe, inspiring young artists and providing a network for photographers like Josef Sudek (1989.1073), who had been creating work based on similar concepts but were isolated from the larger community of art photographers. Subjektive Fotografie's identification and knitting together of like-minded creative photographers provided a fertile ground for the emergence of contemporary art photography in Europe today."Metreopolitan Museum of Art
