Croton Dam photographs by Clarence White


In April 1925, Clarence White, one of the founding members of the Photo-Secession movement, took a group of students to photograph at Croton Dam. The series of images he made incorporate the soft, diffused light of Pictorialism with the modern, abstract vision that interested him in his later compositions. He compiled his work from that day into a portfolio of small platinum prints. White died later that same year while teaching in Mexico.
