Clarence H. White(1871-1925), Photographer
Sitter in 1 portrait
A founding member of the Photo-Secession group, Clarence White produced a body of work that was poetic, romantic and usually more metaphorical or subjective than descriptive. His career as an active photographer was short, as his talents and energy were directed to teaching from 1907 until his death. He was a highly influential teacher, establishing the Clarence White School of Photography in 1914. A self-taught amateur photographer, he joined the Newark, Ohio, camera club and had his first exhibition in 1898. In 1899 his work was shown at the Linked Ring exhibition in London and he was invited to join that group the following year. In 1902 he helped Alfred Steiglitz establish the Photo-Succession movement.
