Karl Struss

'[Ken Johnson on Karl Struss] In typical Pictorialist fashion, Struss used soft-focus lenses and elaborate printing techniques to create poetically blurry images. But he did not surrender completely to the vaporous romance that often characterizes the style. His rigorously composed views of the city are animated by the tension between timeless reverie and modern urgencies that would soon render Pictorialism obsolete.'
