Review

"...the book bring[s] together Stieglitz's photographs of New York City for the first time since 1932, when he showcased his own New York photographs at his midtown gallery, An American Place... selections of these works are brought together again and discussed for the first time to show the rise of a modern city from the personal perspective of one of the twentieth century's greatest photographers." ~The Huffington Post, "Social News"

"In a new book by Bonnie Yochelson... Stieglitz’s photos are put into a contemporary context. At the time, the young photographer sought to produce romantic imagery that channelled his own fascination with the city." ~The Wall Street Journal

"Alfred Stieglitz does not need the Lens blog to enhance his reputation. So there is no real point in urging readers to see the exhibition “Alfred Stieglitz New York” at the Seaport Museum, whose curator describes it as the first show of the master’s collected New York photographs in 78 years. We know that if you can see this show, you will. And if you can’t see the show in person, you can buy the accompanying book, written by Bonnie Yochelson, the curator of the exhibition, and published by Skira Rizzoli at the attractive price of $25." ~New York Times, "Lens Blog"

“By way of an elegantly mapped visual experience, Alfred Stieglizt New York successfully presents a coherent, essential theme through all three sections—a sense of Stieglizt the man, as he saw himself through all the facets of the city of New York.” ~ArtsEditor
 
“Throughout, Stieglitz’s love for New York is obvious. So is his genius for composition—the unfailing knack he had for balancing lines, forms and tones.” ~Planet
 
“…a crisp view into life in turn of the century Manhattan.” ~The New York Observer

I love the illustrations in this book,, it's a well written book by Yochelson; and being a serious fan of Stieglitz, among others of his time, I'm very glad I have it!! One of my fellow photographers has seen it and wants a copy as well!
