In the early 20th century, Lily White and Sarah Ladd, associate members of Alfred Steiglitz's Photo-Secession Movement, spent three summers living on and photographing the Columbia in a houseboat, which was equipped with a darkroom; the resulting platinum prints are in the exhibit.
O'Keeffe sent some of these drawings to a friend living in New York City, who brought them to 291 Gallery, owned and operated by the pioneer photographer and champion of modern artists, Alfred Steiglitz. Upon seeing the drawings, Steiglitz remarked that they were the "purest, finest, sincerest things that had entered 291 in a long while." Steiglitz hung the charcoals without O'Keeffe's knowledge or consent, and thus the woman who would become the most critically acclaimed and popular female artist in American history had her first New York exhibition.
Alfred Steiglitz photographed his wife, the artist Georgia O'Keeffe, frankly objectifying her body while Man Ray, with more decorum, photographed the photographer and journalist Lee Miller, whose own work is currently the subject of a major show at the V&A.

Yet still we see the eye of an artist, in "The Hill," for instance, a portrait of Alfred Steiglitz and his Lake George home: "I wonder what the old house felt when rooms and baths were added," Toomer writes, "when furnishings which it had never seen the like of were moved in, when the complexities of the Steiglitz family began weaving in and out of the rooms and into the simple old wood and farmer's plaster." Toomer achieved lyric resonance well after Cane.
