Description
   Announcing a Steiglitz exhibit at the gallery with the "Steerage" photo.

Alfred Stieglitz (18641946), U.S. photographer who fought for the recognition of photography as an art. Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, Stieglitz concentrated on natural untouched photography and first received acclaim for his photographs of snow scenes in New York city, and genre scenes in Europe and aboard ship. He also did a series on his wife, Georgia O'Keeffe, the painter, years later. Stieglitz was the first photographer whose pictures were accepted by museums in the United States. In 1905 Stieglitz opened the "Little Gallery" on Fifth Avenue and exhibited photography together with the work of American and European artists, such as Picasso, Matisse, and Brancusi years before the academic art-shattering Armory show of 1913. Stieglitz then edited a magazine devoted to photography, Camera Work, which ran for 50 editions. In 1925 Stieglitz opened his impressive gallery called "The American Place," but he continued to introduce innovations in his own photographic work. He believed that the merit of his photographs was not dependent on the personality of the sitter or the drama of a given subject and that he could endow his photographs of grass and clouds with the emotion and excitement that he instilled in his portraits. He called these "Equivalents." In 1934 America and Alfred Stieglitz - a Collective Portrait was published in which celebrated poets, writers, artists, and leading photographers contributed their interpretation of him both as artist and unique personality.
