COBURN, Alvin Langdon (1882–1966)



photogravure / 10 inches by 7 inches

Coburn was an American-born photographer whose career is closely associated with Great Britain. With Alfred Steichen and others, he became a leader in the development of Pictorialism. “Spider-webs” was one of several Coburn images published in Camera Work, a periodical published by Alfred Stieglitz. This image came from issue #21 of Camera Work in 1908 — found recently in the custodial closet of the old Agincourt Public Library and given by the current tenants, Cable, Coomaraswamy & Bell, attorneys-at-law.
