Stieglitz and the Photo-secession, 1902Book - 2002
In 1902, an avant-garde band of photographers, led by Alfred Stieglitz, began to champion their work as art, rather than as a form of documentation, in an exhibit at the National Arts Club in New York. They called themselves the Photo-Secession and are now considered to be the best and most original photographers of their day. This is the first book to recreate that monumental exhibit, with 100 colour plates complemented by text from noted art scholar William Innes Homer. This beautiful book and remarkable tribute to Stieglitz and his contemporaries is a must for all art lovers.
