24 If the goal of art is nothing more than accurate reproduction, however, it is easy to see that photography is not just equal to painting but vastly superior to it, so that Stieglitz found it difficult not to overshoot his original goal. 26 Stieglitz managed to carry the point, even in the popular press,27 and it did establish a direct connection between photography and the adventurous painting that began to take up more and more space in his galleries. Unfortunately, that connection was an entirely negative one.

Murphy and Mr. ”132 Pound, of course, had many interests, especially during his Paris years, and his own work was far too advanced by this time to have received any significant impetus from this relatively brief association with film. But it may be that the enthusiasms of the Paris years are far more appropriate to his own work than the grumpy disdain he tended to voice in London. Vachel Lindsay would have thought so, at any rate, for he had been insisting since 1915 that there was a fundamental commonality of interest between Imagism and the new medium of film.

The first step in making photography into an art has always been to deny one or more of the fundamental characteristics of the medium. 35 However, the ability of the camera to retain far more detail than any individual human being could perceive, much less record accurately, which was first a marvel, soon became something of an embarrassment, because it advertised so obviously the mechanical nature of the medium. Left to its own devices, as Peter Henry Emerson argued influentially toward the end of the nineteenth century, the camera is not only inartistic but unnatural.
