Synopsis : Alfred Stieglitz was one of the most important cultural forces in twentieth-century America. As founder of the Photo Secession movement and editor of the influential Camera Work he eschewed the prevailing "artiness" of pictorialist photography, preferring clarity of vision and "crystallized awareness." In galleries such as "291" and An American Place he showed and championed the work of modern artists from the US and Europe. As a photographer, editor, and gallery director Stieglitz was a powerful influence on photography and on American art in general.
A propos de l'auteur:
Born in 1864 in Hoboken, New Jersey, Alfred Stieglitz became interested in photography at an early age. In the 1890's, following his university education in Germany, he traveled and photographed extensively in Europe. After returning to the United States in 1890 to live in New York City, he championed photography as a modern art form and introduced new talents in European and American art such as Auguste Rodin, John Marin, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and Georgia O'Keeffe, whom he married in 1924. His influence on American art and photography was exercised through his editorship of magazines such as Camera Notes, Camera Work, 291, and MSS, and his founding and sponsorship of galleries such as "291," The Intimate Gallery, and An American Place. He died in New York in 1946.
