Photographer, writer, publisher, and curator Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was
a visionary, far ahead of his time. Around the turn of the 20th century he
founded the Photo-Secession, a progressive movement concerned with
advancing the creative possibilities of photography, and by 1903 began
publishing Camera Work, an avant-garde magazine devoted to voicing the
ideas, both in images and words, of the Photo-Secession. Camera Work was
the first photo journal whose focus was visual, rather than technical, and its
illustrations were of the highest quality hand-pulled photogravure printed on
Japanese tissue. This book brings together a broad selection from the
journal’s 50 issues.
