Practically every citizen of the United States is willing and anxious to do something to help win the war.

The Military Intelligence Branch of the War Department wishes your co-operation in obtaining all the photographs it is possible to secure of those parts of Belgium and France that are now occupied by German forces.

If you have such pictures, they are wanted. If you know of any one who has been in France or Belgium previous to the present war who has a collection of pictures made in that territory now occupied by the Germans, will you please make an effort to have such pictures sent at once to Lt. Col. A. B. Coxe, General Staff, 1156 Fifteenth St. N. W., War Department, Washington, D. C.

Mr. Charles Brandenburg is probably one of the youngest photographers on Fifth Ave. That he is successful is understood for he has established an excellent business and by his pro-gressiveness, holds the prestige he has gained.

As a boy he had a natural bent for drawing and painting, so after a modest Art education he decided to enter a profession which would give him an opportunity to use this talent.

A position in a Fifth Ave. studio gave him the opportunity to gain valuable experience in practical work. With this experience and an influential friend as a partner his venture in business for himself proved so successful that after two years he was able to open a studio for himself on Fifth Ave.

FROM AN ARTURA IRIS PRINT

By Charles Brandenburg New York, N. Y.

This seems a very simple thing in the telling, but it is, in reality, a very remarkable achievement. To enter a studio as an apprentice at twenty-three, open a studio on New York's most exclusive thoroughfare at thirty and to still be there at thirty-four, with every prospect of continued success, is a record of which any photographer might justly be proud.

No matter how proficient a man may be in some chosen line of work he generally finds himself lacking in some of the elements that enter into the makeup of a successful business man. Mr. Brandenburg did not lack in ability as a salesman but felt keenly the need of a deeper insight into human nature if he was to make work out of the ordinary. He read much on psychology, physiognomy and the application of these, and kindred subjects, to art and, by the use of the knowledge gained, found that the character of his work was greatly improved.

His method of removing lines and wrinkles is based on changing the state of mind that produces them. There is nothing new in the theory - it is merely a clever process of mental suggestion, used by every man who is accredited with having a pleasing personality, by which a pleasing, natural and characteristic expression and pose are secured without the use of "look pleasant, please," and similar antiquated studio methods.
