Biography:
Alfred Stieglitz became a photography student in Germany in 1883, going on to become an influential figure in the development of the medium and also artists of other disciplines. In 1905, he founded the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession with the help of Edward Steichen, located at 291 Fifth Avenue in New York City. He organized many exhibitions at the gallery that later became known as “291,” helping to put photography on the same level as painting and sculpture. Stieglitz promoted his Photo-Secessionist and Pictorialist movements by publishing the journals, “Camera Notes” and “Camera Work.” His early photographs were done in the Pictorialist style, but he later focused on specific subjects, including series done of New York City and his wife Georgia O’Keeffe
