“Mending Nets” or “The Net Mender”
Author: Alfred Stieglitz (American, 1864-1946)Date: 1894Medium: PhotogravurePublished: Die Kunst in der Photographie (Art Folio #1), 1898The subject of this photograph is of a young woman concentrating on her task of mending a fishing net on the dunes at Katwyk in North Holland. In 1899, in the publication Photographic Life I, Stieglitz said:

Mending Nets was the result of much study. It expresses the life of a young Dutch woman: every stitch in the mending of the fishing net, the very rudiment of her existence, brings forth a torrent of poetic thoughts in those who watch her sit there on the vast and seemingly endless dunes, toiling with that seriousness and peacefulness which is so characteristic of these sturdy people. All her hopes are concentrated in this occupation—it is her life.

"In the hourless forest
a tall tree is being felled.
...
Search, birds, search
for the site of your nests
in this high memory
while it is still murmuring."

— Jules Supervielle
