The steerage

March 18, 2017

It came to mind when having a look to one of my works:

http://100photos.time.com/photos/alfred-stieglitz-steerage

Considered a very important photograph. Stieglitz moved from pictorial works towards what called "straight" photographs. For ending in a sort of abstraction he called "equivalents".

Hat circle versus cross suspenders, division in two classes and strong structure lines are traditionally the elements making it "modern".
