Quick Reference

Artistic photography modelled on the conventions of academic painting: a carefully composed form of personal expression rather than spontaneous or documentary photography. As an anti-mechanistic movement in photography concerned with photography as a craft (e.g. the texture of the paper used), it originated in the late 19th century and lasted until the early 20th century, but its primary concerns remained influential.

Subjects: Photography and Photographs.
