Curatorial description (accessed: 27 July 2016)
J. Craig Annan was known for creating Pictorialist photogravures—combining the photographic detail captured by the lens with the painterly smears and smudges of the ink used in the printing process. Though Alfred Stieglitz would soon move away from supporting the Pictorial aesthetic Annan’s work embodied, Stieglitz liked Bolney Backwater well enough to not only reproduce it in Camera Work in October of 1910, but also include it in the International Exhibition of Pictorial Photography in Buffalo, New York just a month later.
