Alfred Stieglitz, arte moderno y fotografía
Durante sus cincuenta años de carrera, Alfred Stieglitz, fotógrafo estadounidense, de origen judío-alemán, luchó por hacer de la fotografía una forma de arte al nivel de la pintura y la escultura. Para conseguir este objetivo empezó explorando dentro del campo de la fotografía capacidades propias de la pintura (composición, texturas) para después recurrir a elementos propiamente fotográficos (profundidad de campo, efecto de corte fotográfico). Pasó así del pictorialismo a la llamada fotografía directa.
En el vídeo presentado en este artículo Sarah Greenough (National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.) nos da las claves para entender su fascinante y trascendental obra fotográfica.
