while in denver at the tattered cover, i picked up a new bio of stieglitz. in 1897 he would declare "photography is a fad well-nigh on its last legs, thanks principally to the bicycle craze." perhaps he found the younger set of that time disinterested in lugging around a heavy graflex SLR like he was and were opting for another hobby instead. how convenient that cameras are now so small that we can do both!
