James Craig Annan

Bolney Backwater, 1910

Camera Work XXXII

Photogravure, 23.3 x 14.2 cm

The plate for this print was prepared for Stieglitz by James Craig Annan. The print was made by Annan's firm, T. & R. Annan & Sons in Scotland.

J. Craig Annan was known for creating Pictorialist photogravures—combining the photographic detail captured by the lens with the painterly smears and smudges of the ink used in the printing process. Though Alfred Stieglitz would soon move away from supporting the Pictorial aesthetic Annan’s work embodied, Stieglitz liked Bolney Backwater well enough to not only reproduce it in Camera Work in October of 1910, but also include it in the International Exhibition of Pictorial Photography in Buffalo, New York just a month later.
