The image is a fine, full-tone photogravure from CAMERA WORK 6, 1904, and the only photogravure by W. B. post to be included in CAMERA WORK.

William Boyd Post (1857 - 1921) was born in New York City and eventually settled in Maine. By 1889, he was an active member of the Society of Amateur Photographers, New York, and a member of the Camera Club of New York, where his sensitive landscapes caught the attention of Alfred Stieglitz; it was Post who introduced Stieglitz to the hand-held camera in 1892. Post exhibited in group and solo showings at the Camera Club, beginning in 1895, and was elected a fellow of the Photo-Secession in 1903. Post was among the first Americans to consider photography as an art form.
