Somewhat related: I find the comparison between amateur photography at the turn of the century and Pictorialism very thought provoking. Very apropos to the current discussions about amateurs vs. pros vs. artists.

10 minute mark of this episode 1, part 4/4:

Many thanks for pointing out this interesting work. Clearly something worthwhile to look into.
