Photograms of the Year 1911“1912

Nature volume 88, page 347 (11 January 1912) | Download Citation



THIS annual deals chiefly with descriptions and criticisms of the “pictorial” photographs exhibited in the various exhibitions, and brief summaries of the state of pictorial photography in other countries. Mr. Robert Demachy speaks for France, and concludes that there is sounder work going on there. South African progress is recorded by Mr. George E. Whiting, and he deplores the ending of the Journal of Photography published there, but rejoices at the formation of two new societies. The work in Germany is taken in hand by Mr. F. Matthies-Masuren, while Mr. Walter Burke's remarks are devoted to Australia. The main portion of the book is, however,. from the pen of the editor, who, as was announced in NATURE of December 14, died early in that month in New York. Mr. Snowden Ward's contribution consists in the main in describing the special features of trie very large collection of the works exhibited at various places during the past year, and this will be found very useful to those who take up this, the pictorial, side of photography.
