William Mortensen (1897 1965) was an American art photographer, who began his photographic career taking portraits of Hollywood actors and film stills. In 1931 he moved to the artist community of Laguna Beach, California, where he opened a studio and the William Mortensen School of Photography. He preferred the pictorialism style of manipulating photographs to produce romanticist painting-like effects. The style brought him criticism from straight photographers of the modern realist movement and, in particular, he carried on a prolonged written debate with Ansel Adams. His arguments defending romanticist photography led him to be ostracized from most authoritative canons of photographic history. Recent years have brought praise for Mortensen’s development of manipulation techniques and a renewed interest in his work. Photoengraving is a process of preparing illustrations for printing by transferring their images to metal plates by a combination of photography and acid etching.
