Alfred Stieglitz: 'The Eloquent Eye'

Wanting to learn more about the early photographers, I watched this movie via YouTube. This documentary is about the life and work of Alfred Stieglitz and also about the big influence he had on the establishment of Modern Art in the US and in promoting photography as a form of art.

I really enjoyed it, especially the interviews with his wife Georgia O'Keeffe, that shed an extra light on his extraordinary character and work. What really spoke to me was his passion for art and that it was something that was important for his country to see and develop. He didn't just promote his own work, but tried hard to let his genre blossom and introduce America to modern art. It's a kind of selflessness that's not always present in artists which made him a visionary and a very unusual person.
