Stieglitz on Photography

Stieglitz's most significant essays published together for the first time in a single volume. Over the years, Alfred Stieglitz wrote extensively and authoritatively about many aspects of photography. In Stieglitz on Photography renowned Stieglitz expert Sarah Greenough and art historian Richard Whelan gather more than fifty of this master photographer's astute writings about the medium, along with their insightful and anecdotal commentary on each article. Throughout his six-decade career, Stieglitz devoted himself almost entirely to the investigation of truth and integrity in artistic expression. With the pioneering exhibitions he mounted at Gallery 291, the pages of Camera Work he edited and produced, and his extensive writings on photography, Stieglitz tirelessly championed photography as a fine art-a legacy that continues to influence thinking on photography today. Illustrated with reproductions of photographs by Stieglitz and his contemporaries, as well as with selections of his articles in their original layouts, this volume contains reproductions of many of Stieglitz's photographs that are otherwise unknown today.
