The Camera Club, N.Y.
Volume 1, number 1
In May 1896, pioneering American photographer Alfred Stieglitz amalgamated two competing organizations into the Camera Club of New York and turned its newsletter into a magazine, Camera Notes. It was soon considered the finest photographic magazine in the world. Stieglitz included articles about art and aesthetics next to images created by some of the leading American and European photographers. Through this and his highly sought Camera Work, Stieglitz transformed photography into a major art form.
