Naturalist Photography at Work
Naturalist photography strives to produce works that represent the working class, farmers, individuals working the land and enjoying pastimes. Photos that are representative of this era were taken from 1860 through 1890. Symbols of industry were absent from the photographs, as these images hearkened back to time before the Industrial Revolution. While those who used this photography style in Europe are referred to as naturalist photographers, those in the United States who used the same method are called Pictorialists.
