Belphegor, a photograph of a “demon” by William Mortensen (1897-1965).
"Mortensen’s obscurity today is mainly due to his championing of Pictorialism, a force within photography that promoted retouching, hand-worked negatives, chemical washes, and an artistic, painterly approach that soon faded with the advance of modernism."
