American Photography


Below are  references to some of the items that I found to be most interesting and/or relevant to Edinburgh in the 1910 editions of American Photography.
Other articles in the 1910 journal are referred to on the Overview page.




Letter from Alfred Steiglitz  -  He wrote  

"...  I would now like to go on record as saying that I am now as ready as ever to help ay photographer seeking my advice and help.   ...   

Any one caring to see me personally can find me daily, Sunday excepted at the little Gallery of the Photo-Secession, 291 Fifth Avenue, New York, from ten till noon, and from two to six pm, where and when all my time belongs to the public.   ..."


Night work with the Camera  by AH Blake

AH Blake wrote the regular column, Our London Letter, for American  Photogrpaher.  He was Founder of the Society of Night Photographers of England.


RPS Exhibition  -  The journal explained that the Regent Street Halls, used for many years by the Royal Photographic Society for its exhibitions, had been converted into a restaurant.  So the Exhibition was being held this year in the Pall Mall Gallery:

"during August and early September, the deadest part of the London season when every one who is anybody is away to the moors and all the nobodies are down at the seaside."

The journal included several photos from the RPS Exhibition, including one by William Crooke of Edinburgh.


The London Salon of Photography  -  The journal explained how a number pictorial photographers had broken away from the RPS in 1892 alleging the incompetence of the RPS Selection Committee, and had gone on to from the Linked Ring.

[About 35 years earlier,  several members of the Photographic Society of Scotland, in Edinburgh, had left the Society, protesting over the alleged incompetence of its hanging committee.]

The journal reported that further dissention had occurred within the Linked Ring.   Some members, including J Craig Annan had chosen not to exhibit in the 1910 Salon, believing that the Salon had become similar to the state that the RPS when they left it in 1892. 

[J Craig Annan was son of Thomas Annan, a professional photographer who was based for several years at Rock House, Edinburgh, the studio used by Hill & Adamson.
