Rudolf Eickemeyer
Early Modern Photographer, author, illustrator
American, (1862–1932)
Rudolf Eickemeyer was born to an engineer father, and his photography combined technological calculation with aestheticism influenced by photography clubs in the 1880s. Eickemeyer purchased his first camera in 188, and by 1893 he was exhibiting his works in international exhibitions and winning praise for his figure studies. His work is characteristically allegorical portraits or genre scenes, typically pictorialist in nature. Eickemeyer was invited with Alfred Stieglitz to join the exclusive circle of British art photographers, the Linked Ring, who staunchly opposed commercial photography. With fellow New York photographer James L. Reese, Eickemeyer opened Carbon Studio in a Fifth Avenue townhouse in 1895. Eickemeyer then collaborated with Herbert Morand in founding the New York City branch of Campbell Studio where he continued his work in portraiture until setting up an independent studio in 1915.
