A gifted teacher and a devoted proponent of photography as a fine art, Clarence H. White (1871-1925) was a founding member of Alfred Stieglitz's collective, the Photo-Secession. Not quite as modernist as his peers, White focused on sensitive portraiture and atmospheric domestic scenes of women and children. As this career overview reveals, the Ohio native also proved adept at book illustrations, photographing female nudes, and staging sensuous Victorian tableaux. With more than 300 images and multiple texts putting White in the context of what proved to be a golden age for photography, this book offers a reappraisal of a photographer whose work is distinguished by its good taste and simple beauty.
