In Their Words

Both Art and Craft

Read Aloud

Closely allied to both art and craftsmanship, as photography now is, the work of Miss Frances Allen and Miss Mary Allen...would be equally at home in this room or next door to the small gallery of paintings which Mr. Tack has hung in his studio. The Misses Allen use their camera in the same spirit with which a painter uses his brush, and their sense of composition, of the dramatic moment, is as eminent a qualification for their art as for his.
