Alfred Stieglitz's Camera Notes
Paperback ISBN: 0393311260
This striking volume details the history of Camera Notes, the most significant and influential American photographic periodical of its time. Published quarterly by the Camera Club of New York and edited by Alfred Stieglitz, the fountainhead of American art photography, Camera Notes represented a critical phase in the campaign to legitimize the photo image as an artistic pursuit. Throughout most of its six-year life (1897-1903), the publication included thoughtful articles on photography and fine art as well as hundreds of halftone images and stunning high-quality photogravures. While much has been written on Stieglitz's life--including his later publication, Camera Work--little attention has been giving to Camera Notes. All ninety-one of the beautiful photogravures that appeared during the journals life are reproduced here in their original tones. In addition, this volume contains a fully illustrated index of the more than 250 halftones that appeared on its pages.
