Art Photography

Highlights from Stieglitz’s legendary photo journal (1903–1917)
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 all photographs from the journal’s 50 issues.

Photography as Art Form

Joe, October 27, 2021
This collection of "Camera Work" does not disappoint. There are so many developments in creating artistic photography that we seem to take for granted today, and yet the photographs in this work collect some of the earliest experiments, and images playing with the artistic potential of photography. The explanatory essays, in multiple languages, provide great context (in English.. as I am an English speaker) and interpretation.

The price of this book makes it a no-brainer.

Founding Father Of Photography

The beginnings of fine art photography

Andras, October 27, 2021
A collection of artistic portraits, landscapes, nudes, the print could be lighter, but, I suppose, he wanted to be faithful to the original journal.
