About Camera Work
      
Camera Work. A photographic quarterly edited and published by Alfred Stieglitz, New York.
That is on every cover of the 50 numbers ever published between 1903 and 1917.
44 numbers were regular issues, 3 were double issues (numbers 34 and 35, numbers 42 and 43, and, numbers 49 and 50), 2 were special numbers and 1 was a supplement devoted to the photography of Eduard Steichen.
It was, unofficially at first, the mouthpiece of the group of photographers Stieglitz had started and called the photo-secession. The photo-secessionists wanted to promote photography as a fine art and Camera Work was a publication that promoted the photo-secessionists’ work. As such, Camera Work is filled with beautiful photography mostly shown using the printing process named photogravure. It is a photomechanical process, a time consuming way of printing but one that can reproduce the detail and continuous tones of a photograph.
Camera Work is considered to be the most historically important photography magazine of all time. Its pages are filled with images from photographers as well as other artists. Eduard Steichen is the photographer whose work is most published but one can also admire the work of Gertrude Käsebier, Clarence White, Frederick Evans, Robert Demachy, Alvin Langdon Coburn, James Craig Annan, Alfred Stieglitz, David Octavius Hill, Frank Eugene, Paul B. Haviland, Annie Brigman, …
Other visual artists whose work can also be seen gracing the pages are Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Marius De Zayas, Manuel Manolo, …
It is not all images though. Text also plays a big role in the publication. From articles on art to poems, reviews of exhibitions to critiques, photographic techniques to product reviews, one is sure to find something of interest to read.
The last few pages of each number were reserved for advertisements. Some of them could be considered works of art. Looking at them, one cannot help but to have a smile reflecting on a bygone era and to think that all the photographs shown on the pages of Camera Work were most probably made using the equipment and products advertised.
