Gallery No. 131 : Photography By Rob Gale
Note From Rob Gale
One of my projects that you may be interested in was for my history class. I had to do a written report and to take pictures of a pictorialist photographer.
I chose to do my report on Alfred Stieglitz. The image that I am sending you was a replication of an image of his wife Georgia O'Keeffe, 1918. I used one of my friends to model off of the original photograph.
The main goal of the pictorialism period was to make their photographs look like art.
So on purpose, they make slightly out of focus images with a little grain. And they liked their images to be moody. So for the spirit of the project I did the same. While I was doing my project I noticed the beauty of my image. By taking out the equation of being sharp and by adding grain, I look at my subject instead of their flaws. I really appreciated the style of pictorialism that I figured you would too.
Also you can put the image on your blog so others can see this almost forgotten period of photographic history. –Rob Gale-
