Born in New Jersey in 1864, Alfred Stieglitz was a modern art promoter, photographer, editor, writer, New York gallery owner and married at the age of 60 to the “Mother of American modernism”, Georgia O’Keeffe. Stieglitz is perhaps a name in history that you don’t hear too often. He was one of the first New York gallery owners to exhibit Ansel Adams in 1936 and had an influential voice in the shaping photography as modern art movement in the United States during the early 1900s.
Sometimes it’s fun to just reach inside your gear bag and pull something out and play with it for a day. Today, I grabbed my 1982 Nikon FG 35mm film camera. I purchased this camera back in 2015 for around $75 and try to shoot a roll a month to simply remind myself of the mechanics to taking a good photo.
