Local Pictorialism

Pictorialism was a style of photography popular in the late 19th century into the early 20th century that pushed photography away from a simple documentary style to an exercise of expression. Often soft in focus, and in single tones outside of black and white, often brown, the style was practiced professionally by photographers like Margaret DeMott Brown, locally, as well as those less professional. This is a growing showcase of local photos, both professional and amateur, from local photographers.
