Two photography dealers have teamed up for an exhibition dedicated to the Photo-Secession, the group founded by Alfred Stieglitz in 1902 to promote photography as an art form in the United States. Photographs by Stieglitz, Gertrude Käsebier, Alvin Langdon Coburn and their contemporaries are hung alongside two canvases painted by Edward Steichen, a landscape and portrait of one of Stieglitz’s sisters, which are reminders that Steichen, a luminary of Pictorialist photography, started off as a painter.
