LOUIS STETTNER

Louis Stettner (b. 1922) was born and grew up in Brooklyn. He began taking photographs around the age of 12 or 13. As a teenager, Stettner was encouraged by Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand to continue photography, and later became friends with Strand around 1950. Stettner describes himself as a largely self-taught photographer, but pays full credit to the influence of the Photo League on his work. Stettner continued to photograph into the 90s, never straying from working in a tradition of ‘Humanist Realism’, which he saw as the central concern of photography. His photographs are now in such permanent collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
