Stieglitz responds to an announcement of shows of (John) Marin and (Georgia) O'Keefe works at the East-West Gallery in San Francisco wondering where the Gallery will obtain works. Marin is not prolific. Neither he nor O'Keefe repeat themselves or employ any "ism." Stieglitz wishes long life to Art Digest and its founder.
Camera Work: Original, Reprint, and Digitized Copies
Weaves together biographical, historical, and artistic strands to present a colorful tapestry of the photographer Alfred Stieglitz's (1864–1946) early life and work. The book is the first to look closely at the photographer's formative years and photographic works before 1917. The book also recounts his tireless and often lonely efforts as a young photographer, editor, writer, and gallery director to gain recognition for the Modernist cause and for photography as a fine art.
"Stieglitz on Photography is a compilation of Stieglitz's most significant essays gathered from a variety of sources. They are published together here for the first time in a single, illustrated volume. In addition to Stieglitz's commentary on the development of fine-art photography, pictorialism, and the founding of the Photo-Secession, included are notes and darkroom recipes from his early experimentation with night and color photography, platinum and photogravure printing, and other early processes."--BOOK JACKET
This book describes in a clear, accessible manner the main photographic and photomechanical processes (some still in practice) from the origins of the medium up to the time when the use of chemicals and a darkened room in which to process photographs was gradually superseded by the advent of digital photography.
"Since its first publication in 1986, this comprehensive guide has established itself as the essential reference book for print and book collectors, dealers in prints and illustrated books, art librarians, art professors and students, and everyone interested in graphic art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
