About This Image

Print is mounted on gold paper (4.5 x 3.5\"), and then mounted again on brown paper. Silhouette is signed \"Steichen\" by Steichen in ink on print recto.

Camera Work, the legendary publication put out by Alfred Stieglitz from 1903-1917, had a cast of characters behind the scenes who gave it its unique voice and made it run. Kerfoot was one such essential member of the Stieglitz circle, serving as Associate Editor of the publication from 1905–1917. Variants of this image of Steichen (and a similar one Kerfoot made of Stieglitz) were reproduced in Issue 8 (May 1904).

Kerfoot\'s own photographs were included in the inaugural exhibition of the Photo-Secessionists, held at 291 in 1905-6. His photographs are part of the collections of the Getty, the Smithsonian and the Philips Academy.

Variants are illustrated: \"Camera Work, A Critical Anthology\" (Aperture, 1973), p. 47,48; \"Photo-Secession\" (Lunn Gallery catalog by Peter Galassi), p 118, plates a & c.
