The Street, Fifth Avenue

Alfred Stieglitz American

Not on view

In 1903 Stieglitz reproduced this scene in an early issue of his new magazine, Camera Work, and a decade later, at the time of the Armory Show, he made this even larger gravure. Softly focused and printed in equally soft tonalities, the image nevertheless reveals Stieglitz's sharp eye for the precise moment an unwitting protagonist stepped into place to complete his picture.
