Some of you may know that I have been doing more pictorial style photography lately. I have studied it for many years, but never felt like I had anything to share worth mentioning. When I started thinking and teaching my “feel your way to a photograph” theory, I began to find a voice that wanted to express itself through pictorial images.
For many years, I have studied the work of Alfred Stieglitz. He was a very important character in the development of modern photography and modern art. Among his many accomplishments he owned galleries that gave Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin and Henri Matisse all got their first American exposure. He also mounted one of the first exhibitions of photos by Ansel Adams. He married painter, Georgia O’Keeffe and his nudes featuring her have sold for more than $1.4 million.
