Overview

Camera Notes was the most significant American photographic periodical of its time. Published quarterly by the Camera Club of New York and edited by Alfred Stieglitz, the fountainhead of American Art Photography, it represented a critical phase in the campaign to legitimize the photo image as an artistic pursuit. Throughout most of its six-year life (1897-1903) the publication included thoughtful articles on photography as fine art as well as hundreds of halftone images and stunning high-quality photogravures. While much has been written on Stieglitz's life and many endeavors, including his later publication Camera Work, little attention has been given to Camera Notes. This striking volume details the history of Camera Notes and its influence on the photographic world. It reproduces in their original tones all 91 of the beautiful photogravures that appeared during the journal's life. In addition, it contains a fully illustrated index of the more than 250 halftones that appeared on its pages.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Near the end of the 19th century, enthusiasm for the nascent art of photography took root in the proliferation of camera clubs throughout the United States and Europe. In 1897 the Camera Club of New York began a quarterly, Camera Notes , under the editorship of Alfred Stieglitz to promote amateur photography. This short-lived journal was notable for its carefully selected photogravures--an expensive photographic printing process resulting in soft, placidly beautiful images. Besides Stieglitz, Camera Notes featured many other prominent amateurs, including F. Holland Day, Gertrude Kasebier, and Prescott Adamson. Reflecting the Romanticism of American painting, Stieglitz's notions of artistic merit rarely strayed beyond landscape, portraiture, and still life. Thus, this book's usefulness remains largely limited to its reexamination of several long-forgotten photographers and its view into the formative years of the more celebrated Stieglitz. For large art and photography collections only.-- Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., Cal.

This volume reproduces the original tone photographs and photogravures that appeared in a short-lived photographic journal edited by Alfred Stieglitz. First published in 1897, Camera Notes presented photography as an art form and sought to encourage that perspective in its readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Gretchen Garner
"Camera Work" is the best-known journal Alfred Stieglitz, that self-proclaimed high priest of turn-of-the-century photography, edited, but he earlier guided the New York Camera Club's journal of record, "Camera Notes", through most of its short life, 1897-1903. This volume's excellent account of that editorship follows Stieglitz as he lost patience with club members and, led by his elitist vision, dramatically resigned to found "Camera Work". Well-produced and serious, "Camera Notes" was liberally illustrated with fine gravures and many more halftone reproductions, all of which appear here--the gravures as beautiful colorplates, the halftones in small reference illustrations. There are many visual crossovers between Stieglitz's two journals, for he never hesitated in using his own photographs as illustrations, and some were in both journals, as were those of a few of his favorites--Gertrude Kasebier, for instance. This excellent addition to the literature of photography accompanies an exhibition to be seen in Minneapolis, Wichita, Phoenix, Detroit, Huntington (W. Va.), and Washington, D.C.
