Equivalent, 1930



gelatin silver print, 9,2 x 11,7 cm / 3,7 x 4,7 inch

Alfred STIEGLITZ shot his photographs of his series Equivalent in a very dark way. The sky appears very often black, preventing to determine if the shooting took place during day or night. Here it is not the case, the spectator immediately realizes that the photograph was taken day. The tree piece on the right of the picture helps him to determine the time of day. Although the photographs in the Equivalent series often represent only the sky, STIEGLITZ sometimes incorporates other elements into the compositions.
