Remarks

“I’m still battling with the barn—a particular problem which I have not succeeded in solving—interior in shadow & exterior in full sunlight—proper exposure for exterior should be about two seconds, f/64 & interior would be about five minutes! (at least) Then too the sun must be at a particular angle & that happens only for a few minutes on very sunny mornings. And I’m only doing it so insistently because I started to get that picture. And when I’ve got it—if I ever get it—it won’t be particularly beautiful—or even interesting” (Stieglitz to Paul Strand, 7 September 1922 [YCAL and CCP]).
