Printed dark grey stiff-stock paper wrappers, stapled.. Wrappers soiled. A Very Good copy.. Genthe, born in Berlin, emigrated to San Francisco in 1895, where he taught himself the art of photography. Famous for his images of pre-1906 Chinatown, Genthe would later establish himself as a master of portraiture. His subjects would include Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, John D. Rockefeller, Greta Garbo & Isadora Duncan. In this article, written very early in Genthe's career, he presciently declares his admiration for the new camera equipment, which allows for "an unstudied pose and a natural expression..." Further, he herein likens photography to art, where the photographer should strive for "the approval of the painter and sculptor.." A rare item documenting the artistic philosophy of an acknowledged early 20th C. virtuoso of the photograph. . 20 b/w reproduced photographic images.
