Alfred Stieglitz (1862-1946) was an American photographer, writer, editor, gallerist and art promoter. Though he was an internationally acclaimed artist, his influence reached well beyond the camera. He promoted pictorial photography and modern art during his time as editor of Camera Notes and Camera Work. He organized numerous pioneering exhibitions in the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession (also known as 291) from 1905 to 1917, The Anderson Galleries (1923-1925), The Intimate Gallery (1925-1929) and An American Place (1929-1946). Stieglitz worked to promote and elevate a select group of American artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Charles Demuth, and photographer Paul Strand. Headed by Stieglitz, these artists and writers such as Waldo Frank, Paul Rosenfeld, and William Carlos Williams, aimed to define an authentic American identity and promote the art and artists of America. Stieglitz’s direct, and indirect, influence on art history and modernism is far-reaching and unquantifiable.
