About This Item

Sue Davidson Lowe
New foreword by the author
New preface by Anne E. Havinga

A tireless exponent of the avant-garde and a consummate photographer, Alfred Stieglitz was both the embodiment of rebellious New York modernism and an oddly domestic man. In this biography, Lowe presents the man in all of his complexity, offering new insight into Stieglitz’s relationships with artists such as Marin, Hartley, Steichen, and Strand; his paradoxical dealings with his family; his marriage to Georgia O’Keeffe; his pioneering promotion of Europe’s most radical artists; and his creation of some of our century’s most enduring photographic images. Gracefully interweaving Stieglitz’s career with his personal life, Lowe presents a uniquely compelling and intimate portrait of a hugely influential, hugely enigmatic American artist.

"Fascinating." - Newsweek

“A portrait-in-the-round of the pioneer American photographer … Affectionate but measured.” - The New Yorker

“Contains a trove of choice information.” - Boston Globe
