Abstract:
In 1910 Alfred Stieglitz published two pamphlets titled Photo-Secessionism and Its Opponents, reproducing letters written by Stieglitz and fellow Secessionist Annie W. Brigman, to Frank Roy Fraprie, Walter Zimmerman, and Francis J. Mortimer, members of the international photographic community in public opposition to the activities of the Photo-Secession. The extent of Stieglitz's frustration with the frequent pictorialist quarrels occurring from 1900 to 1910, and the degree to which "secessionist" principles and actions were misunderstood is apparent from the correspondence. This thesis examines the letters published in Photo-Secessionism and Its Opponents, the statements of the opposition figures which these letters answer, and the situations which produced them. From this examination a clearer understanding of pictorial photographic politics and the principles and purposes of the Photo-Secession is gained.
