Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"The photographic career of Alvin Langdon Coburn appears before our eyes like a brief time exposure through a fast lens."

He was an amazing modern photographer working a century ahead of his time, inventing cutting edge techniques along the way...all in the first 24 years of his life.  Then enjoy a full report of what came after that in the remaining 60 years. It's an engrossing and fresh story.

Mrs. Marsh's paper explores the relationship between photography and fine art through the lens of the long forgotten photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn, who was born in 1882, with a nod along the way to the Spencer Art Reference Library and the cult of Freemasonry, and the current heralded fine art photographer Matthew Pillsbury.

About the Author

Joan Marsh is a member of the '81 Club of Kansas City, Missouri,
which was formed in 1881 for the purpose of presenting scholarly
papers to the membership, avoiding the forbidden topics of the Civil
War, politics and religion. This intimate look at Madame Chiang Kai-shek is one of many '81 Club papers spotlighting such stars as Margaret Queen of Scotland, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Madame Curie, Nora Ephron, Isabella Stewart Gardner, David Douglas Duncan, Robert Edsel, eventually totaling a body of work of 25 titles, better known as the
THRILLING READING LIVING VICARIOUSLY Series.


Joan attended the University of Missouri and holds a B.A. from Texas
Tech University. Her major was English, and as night follows the day,
led to her 43 year career in publishing education programs for
children. Joan and Alan Marsh founded MarshFilm Enterprises, Inc.
dba MarshMedia in 1969. The Marshes live in Kansas City, Missouri,
where they raised their two sons. Those sons and their families,
including eight grandchildren, who live all over the world, were the
inspiration for many of the children's stories.

The family motto is Carpe Diem. Seize the Day!
