Biography:
Peter Henry Emerson was born in Cuba and lived there until his family moved to England during his teenage years. He became a physician and scientist, but eventually began photographing as a hobby at the age of twenty-six. He preferred rural subjects displayed in a simplistic manner. In 1889, his book Naturalistic Photography argued that pictures should imitate nature rather than alter it. Emerson was an involved speaker and writer about this issue and became a leading figure in the Photo-Secessionist movement that was founded in 1902 by Alfred Stieglitz.
