As an aside I can also recommend his nudes, which are simply beautiful.

Pictorialism tried to express emotions and artistic interpretation rather than the precise technical reproduction accuracy that photography was (and is) capable of.
Lynn I came upon these images at Pinterest which includes some lovely pictorialism images.

Two of the photographers shown in the above I am familiar with - Irma Haselberger and Antonio Palmerini who can both be found over at Flickr or here at Pinterest. Theirs is necessarily a more contemporary take of course.

And of course Steiglitz and Steichen (also seen in the first link above) were brilliant as most would know I am sure.

I can see myself experimenting in this style much, much more in the future.

Some of Pictorialist movement work was in straight B&W rather than toned as the soft painterly look/effect that more reflected a painting or what was consider art in those days. Additionally some Pictorialists even worked in color using the Autochrome process

I am particularly partial to autochrome. That lovely soft colors and grain complements certain photos in a way that is difficult to emulate using any other photo technology.

Have you seen the BBC documentary "The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn or the Book of the same title?

In my opinion this can be considered pictorial enough...do you agree?

Shot with Nikon FM2T, Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat Lens on Ilford Delta 400, minimal post processing (contrast).



PS: I hate when the spelling corrector changes Ilford in Alford

I looked at a bunch of images last night and I can say that I love the style as an artistic approach vs my normal "perfect shot" attempt at photography. I think I have a couple that may work as this style, if they don't please feel free to remove them!

Although I don't think the tones in this are quite right (a bit too grainy and coarse) I think the blur and indistinct imagery may qualify this as a kind of modern pictorial photo.

I did make this one a while back based on an earlier image with some vertical motion blur added for effect to emphasize the verticality of the elements. I think if it were rendered in black and white with tones adjusted to suit, it might pass as a pictorial image. In this color version though it seems to me to be more of an abstract.
