Stieglitz's earliest surviving photographic subjects tend toward travel views and scenes of rural life. These photographs of family members, here his daughter Katherine, suggest a transition to more personal subject matter around the turn of the century. Stieglitz considered these works of art as well as family pictures, exhibiting and publishing several photographs of his daughter. With these images Stieglitz conceived the idea of creating a portrait series made up of many different views taken over the subject's lifetime.
