A Beautiful Monograph Illuminating the Iconic Images of one of the Most Central and Influential Photographers of the Twentieth Century. Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was a key figure in America’s acceptance of photography as a serious form of artistic expression. As founder of the Photo Secession movement and editor of the influential Camera Work, he is one of the most important cultural forces in twentieth-century America. His work bridges the gap between the self-consciously aesthetic Pictorialist photography at the turn of the century, and the more precisely descriptive ‘straight’ photography of the 1920s and 1930s. ALFRED STIEGLITZ by Graham Clarke, is an illustrated overview of the work of this legendary photographer.
