Catalogue Note

The Photo-Secession exhibition at the Art Galleries of the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh was held in 1904, two years after the movement was founded by Alfred Stieglitz.  According to Stieglitz, the name meant 'a seceding from the accepted idea of what constitutes a photograph.' Membership was by invitation, and a directory of fellows and associates were listed in Camera Work in 1903.

In the April 1904 (No. 6) issue of Camera Work, Stieglitz writes: 'A limited edition of three hundred and fifty of the Pittsburg [sic] catalogue was issued in a de luxe form, illustrated with seven gravures printed upon Japan tissue from plates loaned by Camera Work. . . A few of the edition de luxe are still to be had at the original price, two dollars each, by applying to the Director of the Photo-Secession.'
