Alfred Stieglitz video

The video is on Alfred Stieglitz and the Photo Secessionists. Pay attention to the Pictorialists, and Stieglitz’s three-pronged strategy to elevate the status of photography (what are they?). Also, make note of the transition from Pictorialism to Straight Photography and the impact of the Armory Show of 1913 and modern art.
