Beginning in the age of sail, Morris and Stanley Rosenfeld devoted nearly a century to making remarkable photographs of sail and, eventually, power boats. Through the pictures in the Art of the Boat 2021 calendar, we can look back to the age of sailing on a grand scale and see the start of a new era of power boating. In 1898 using a borrowed camera Morris Rosenfeld won a photo contest with the picture of a three-masted ship on the East River of New York. The $5 prize allowed him to purchase his own camera and begin a career in photography. Together Morris and son Stanley devoted nearly a century to making photographs of boats. Their work —more than one million images— was acquired in 1984 by Mystic Seaport Museum and is the largest collection of maritime photographs in the United States.
