*Today I want to focus on Symbolist photography…also referred to as “pictorialist” or art-photography…

The Bubble by Clarence H. White, 1898.

The term Pictorialism is used to describe photographs in which the actual scene depicted is of less importance than the artistic quality of the image. Pictorialists would be more concerned with the aesthetics and, sometimes, the emotional impact of the image, rather than what actually was in front of their camera. (source)

Chorus girl, Hope Chandler, in the dressing room backstage at the Paradise cabaret restaurant in New York City, 1937. Photo by Peter Stackpole.

This photo was featured on the cover of LIFE Magazine when she was just 16 years of age and was named the “Prettiest Girl in Paradise”. David Whitmire Hearst, son of William Randolph Hearst, noticed her on the cover and promised that he would marry her before she was snatched up by another suitor. They married in 1938 and they remained together happily for 48 years until his death in 1986. Hope passed away in January 2012.
