1920 Photography by Guy Elliott
1920 saw Ansel Adams enjoy his first published photograph in the "Sierra Club Bulletin." George Hoyningen-Huene also ranked among the decade's great shutterbugs. Clarence Sinclair Bull, the illustrious photographer of celebrities, began his famous portraiture collaboration with Greta Garbo in 1929. Fashion photographer Edward Steichen experienced great success during the era as the chief photographer for "Vogue" and "Vanity Fair."
Kodak created many widely used photographic equipment, including the No.1 Pocket Junior and No.1 Autographic. The Houghton Speed Reflex was an early example of a single lens reflex camera, which allows the photographer to view an image as it will appear on film before the shot is taken.
Photojournalism's importance to coverage of WWI also increased the journalistic and monetary presence of the art form in the 1920s.
