ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for American photographer Alfred Stieglitz is presented. Born on January 1, 1864, Stieglitz has published and exhibited much of the best photography of the early 20th century. He formed The Photo-Secession in 1902 to advance photography as applied to pictorial expression. He clarified that painting and photography were distinct forms of visual expression, in an effort to define a legitimate place for art photography.
