Straight Photography
In the beginning of the 20th century, with the pictorialism
being as strong as ever, a movement was forming to return to
the direct and unmanipulated photography, which
characterized much of the 19th century imagery.
Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), an American photographer, was
the leader and catalyst for photography as an art form.
