Zorn and the Camera #1 Poster
Painters' use of the camera as an aid at the end of the 19th century was common, but it was not something that people liked to talk about in public. Photographic templates could be perceived as cheating. However, we do know that Zorn used photographic prints early in his career, in the early 1880s when he was working in England.
Zorn photographed with a handheld camera with roll film. He seems to have bought his first camera just at the stage when amateur photography broke through on a wide front, in connection with the launch of the first roll film cameras around 1890. Zorn did not develop his films himself, instead he hired a local photo dealer.
