Lotte Jacobi "Portrait of Alfred Stieglitz, New York"

This eclectic group of photos, including everything from self-portraits to behind-the-scenes views of commercial photo sets, takes as its focus on one of our favorite subjects: the medium of Photography itself. Icons of photographic history such as Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Margaret Bourke-White, Edward Weston, Philippe Halsman, and Berenice Abbott are included; a French photo club, circa 1880 poses in an omnibus in their hats and capes; and perhaps the medium’s most ubiquitous maker, “Anonymous,” gets atop a precariously tall ladder, all the better to capture a Victorian-era garden under construction.

Works, ranging from $150 to $6,000, date from the 19th to the 20th Century, and include both renowned and lesser-known practitioners. Despite the fact that the medium is so much in the public eye, it is rarely considered with an insider’s sensitivity to its makers and materials.
