Did you know?

On March 6, 1998, a congressional bill declared Lake Champlain to be the country’s sixth Great Lake, but its status and the bill were rescinded on March 24.


At the turn of the twentieth century, sharp focus and informational content dominated commercial photography, portraiture, and the snapshots produced by amateurs using the new Kodak camera. Pictorialists like Steichen, in contrast, gloried in soft focus. They emphasized mood and formal values over fact as part of their assertion that photography was a creative medium and that photographs could be fine art.
