The photographic journal Camera Work was first published in 1903 under the direction of Alfred Stieglitz, photographer and vocal promoter of new forms of expression. Following the launch of his gallery 291 in 1905, the journal served as a major vehicle for expanding upon the gallery's activities and advancing Stieglitz's vision for the arts. In his efforts to expose the American public to modernism, he sought to present a multiplicity of forms and a combination of different media. His approach is apparent in this photograph of what he considered "possibly the most important show we have ever had," the exhibition Statuary in Wood by African Savages: The Root of Modern Art (November 3–December 8, 1914).
