New Book and Photography Exhibit on the Seattle Camera Club

UW Press

The new book, Shadows of a Fleeting World: Pictorial Photography and the Seattle Camera Club, authored by David F. Martin and Nicolette Bromberg has been published by the University of Washington Press as the companion to an exhibition at the Henry Art Gallery (February 12 – May 8, 2011). Attend a free panel discussion and reception at the Henry on Friday, February 11 at 7 pm – 8:30 pm.

This beautifully illustrated book and the exhibit of rarely seen work documents the lives and artistic accomplishments of the Seattle Camera Club photographers. It provides a rare glimpse into the regional Pictorialist movement. Pictorialism emerged in the early twentieth century; artists engaged in this style were interested in the effects of transient light and Japanese composition.
