The purpose of this group is to learn about the history of photography and expand each of our practical understandings and aesthetic and technical photographic repertoires: Given this, submissions should focus not only on subject matter, ie the “what” of the photo, but also on the “how”, “why”, and “when” of the photo.
Periodically we will change the name of the master photographer in the Group Title. Contributors should only submit photographs in the “style” of the master photographer nominated. “Style” in this sense is not only about the editing style and the compositional arrangement of items in the frame but may also cover the context, concept and subject matter that the nominated master photographer shoots.
Currently we feature the great photographer Edward Steichen, but specifically his monochromatic street ad urban photography. Submissions should be in this style.

As the group develops thematic competitions will be introduced along the same lines – focussing on styles rather than representing particular things.
