Louis J. Stellman: Youth and Age

$800.00
Quantity available: 1
Signed in ink recto lower right; titled in pencil verso. Photographed in Chinatown, San Francisco. Louis Stellman is sometimes regarded as a student of Arnold Genthe's, although there is no evidence of any formal teacher-student relationship between them. They knew each other primarily through the California Camera Club in San Francisco, where Stellman sharpened his skills as a photographer. A journalist by profession, Stellman did not conceive of his photographs as his primary means of expression. Instead he combined them with words and published two paeans to San Francisco: The Vanished Ruin Era, a book of photographs and poetry on the earthquake and fire, and That Was a Dream Worth Building, in celebration of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition. His Chinatown photographs were made in the years 1908- 1913.
