William Mortensen: Occult Photoshop Master of Hollywood’s Golden Era


My latest article on Dear Darkling is probably one of the best I’ve done and it put me in contact with Stephen Romano, a Mortensen expert and art dealer/curator. I didn’t know much about the history of photography, but after researching the feud between Pictorialists and the f/64 Group, about how Mortensen was essentially wiped from the halls of fame because of his preferred style and themes, well, it opened my eyes. There was so much depth and hidden betrayals and mystery that I never knew existed in the photography community.

If that piqued your interest, read about William Mortensen and his feud with Ansel Adams here.
