The Artistic Side of Photography in Theory and Practice


This was a well-received book that was published simultaneously in New York, London and Toronto. Anderson, an English author, thoroughly covered creative photography and its technical side in the text.

The 12 rich, hand-pulled photogravures were all by leading pictorialists of the time; Alvin Langdon Coburn, F. Holland Day, Baron Adolf De Meyer, Frank Eugene, Gertrude Käesebier, George H. Seeley, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz and Clarence H. White. Coburn who characteristically, etched his own plates, consulted with the publisher and oversaw the quality of all the photogravures.
