F. Holland Day. Suffering the Ideal.

Photographs by F. Holland Day. Text by James Crump.
Twin Palms Publishers, Santa Fe, 1995. 144 pp., 96 four-color illustrations, 11x14".

Nineteenth century photographer F. Holland Day, probably best known for his self-portraits as Jesus Christ on the cross, was a prominent portraitist and, later, creator of mythological images featuring male nudes. An outspoken and irrepressible proponent for the development of photography as art, Day challenged Stieglitz as the leading spokesman for American photography by organizing the first major European exhibition of American photographers in London in 1910. Noted critic and writer James Crump offers lucid and insightful commentary on Day's activities as a publisher, his scandalous reputation with British Decadence, and the reasons for his relative marginalization in the history of photography.
