"Due to continuing financing difficulties..." What this actually means is "95% of subscribers had cancelled their subscriptions"!

Looking at the articles Camera Work and Photo-Secession, and related bits of the Alfred Stieglitz article, it seems to me they all say basically the same thing, large chunks read as copy-paste jobs of one another: I've found myself correcting exactly the same stuff in each article. That's not to say that they are not all needed, but they need to be differentiated from one another and not simply regurgitate the same stuff. Samatarou (talk) 04:38, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Well I finally got round to removing the duplicated info (or rather condensing it to a minimal summary of what is said in the other articles). I also augmented the article here and there to inject a bit of balance into what struck me as a rather rose-tinted view (as noted in the quote at the top). Camera Work was a great journal, but it lost its way half way through with Stieglitz becoming disillusioned with photography and his subscribers becoming disillusioned with him.
