Volume: 1
Issue: 1
Date: July 1897
Published in: New York, NY
A quarterly journal embellished with original photographs “chosen from the best material the world affords” by such notable photographers as Alfred Stieglitz, who was vice-president of the Camera Club, New York, which published it. It pioneered America’s artistic photography movement, while retaining an alliance with the amateur photographer. This issue has two plates, one by Stieglitz. This magazine, and the more common and expensive Camera Work (no. 1 – 50, 1903 – Je 1917), edited by Stieglitz, which essentially succeeded at it, are the most sought after American photography periodicals. Individual issues are quite expensive, in direct proportion to the quanity and quality of the photographs, which are considered works of art. The most expensive issue of Camera Work is no. 36, the second-most is the last issue no. 49/50. See “Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Notes” by Christian A. Peterson, W. W. Norton & Co., inc 1993.
