Stieglitz and the Photo-Secession, 1902 by William Innes Homer

In 1902, under the leadership of Alfred Stieglitz, photographer and art impresario, the first American avant-garde art movement in the cause of pictorial photography came into being. The dominant trend in American photography up until this point had been photography in the documentary tradition, such as that of Mathew Brady. Pictorial photographers championed aesthetics over pure documentation. For Stieglitz and the Photo-Secessionists, whether these qualities were achieved through manipulating prints and negatives or through careful composition of subject was beside the point; what was crucial was the emotional impact the images had on the viewer. Illustrated with artefacts, catalogues, and, of course, a definitive array of photographs - many rarely seen - Stieglitz and the Photo Secession, 1902 reconstructs the original Photo-Secession exhibition as it celebrates the centennial of the event.
