Photography played an important role in the development of modern art in the early 20th century. American photographer Alfred Stieglitz spent his 50-year career working to establish photography as a fine art form. The Photo-Secession movement was co-founded by Stieglitz in 1902, with the then controversial viewpoint that the significance of photography lies not in the subject matter of the photograph but in the way the artist achieved their subjective vision through the manipulation of the image. Following the formation of the Photo-Secession movement, Stieglitz – unhappy with contemporary photographic journals of the time – founded Camera Work, a quarterly journal published from 1903-1917 that served to aid in Photo-Secession efforts. This exhibition highlights work by photographers in the permanent collection who were featured in Camera Work, including several photographs that were published in various issues.
