"Camera Notes" was one of the most significant American photographic periodicals of its time. Published quarterly by the Camera Club of New York and edited by Alfred Stieglitz, it represented a critical phase in the campaign to legitimize the photo image as an artistic pursuit. Throughout most of its six-year life (1897-1903) the publication included articles on photographs as fine art, as well as hundreds of halftone images and high-quality photogravure images. While much has been written on the rest of Stieglitz's endeavours, no attention has been given to this vital publication. This volume focuses on "Camera Notes" and its influence. It reproduces all of the more than 250 halftones that appeared in its pages, as well as all of the beautiful photogravures in their original tones.

Camera Work is the best-known journal Alfred Stieglitz, that self-proclaimed high priest of turn-of-the-century photography, edited, but he earlier guided the New York Camera Club's journal of record, Camera Notes, through most of its short life, 1897-1903. This volume's excellent account of that editorship follows Stieglitz as he lost patience with club members and, led by his elitist vision, dramatically resigned to found Camera Work. Well-produced and serious, Camera Notes was liberally illustrated with fine gravures and many more halftone reproductions, all of which appear here--the gravures as beautiful colorplates, the halftones in small reference illustrations. There are many visual crossovers between Stieglitz's two journals, for he never hesitated in using his own photographs as illustrations, and some were in both journals, as were those of a few of his favorites--Gertrude Kasebier, for instance. This excellent addition to the literature of photography accompanies an exhibition to be seen in Minneapolis, Wichita, Phoenix, Detroit, Huntington (W. Va.), and Washington, D.C. Gretchen Garner
