Alfred Stieglitz (born 1864 Hoboken, New Jersey; died 1946, New York) is credited with elevating photography to the status of art through his tireless efforts as a photographer, collector, curator, writer, and publisher. He founded and edited the journals Camera Notes and Camera Work, which, along with numerous influential exhibitions at 291, the New York City gallery founded with Edward Steichen in 1905, helped launch the Photo-Secessionist and Pictorialist movements. Stieglitz’s own photography focused in depth on a few subjects, including New York, the cloud studies that he called Equivalents, and a portrait series of his wife, the painter Georgia O'Keeffe. Aperture has published several limited-edition prints by Stieglitz as well as the collections Alfred Stieglitz: A Personal Vision Portfolio and Stieglitz on Photography, which includes a bibliography of his writings.
