Excerpt from Camera Craft, Vol. 15: A Photographic Monthly; January to December, 1908 Inclusive

Taking up the progress of photographic technique, from the simple, natural, Daguerreotype, we come to an era of pretense. Backgrounds are painted, poses are theatrical, lighting is unnatural, and all the needed character is removed from the face. A halt must be called. Photography, portrait photography, is following a blind, lane; there is no going ahead, only turning back - back to the natural and the simple we must return. It may be argued that the public approve of the work turned out by the photographer along these lines, and that its taste will have to be humored. The public, the majority, never did anything for progress, except that it has sometimes failed to oppose. Progress has always been the work of a few, who, through their power and personality, put their imprint upon their time and forced the lazy-minded masses to follow. He who says that he cannot breast the stream, while admitting that his energies are misdirected and against his own artistic conscience, had better take up another work. He is only in the way of advancement; he only hinders the reaching of the heights by those who make for progress. To the stake with him.
