Description
Since its first publication in 1937, this lucid and scholarly chronicle of the history of photography has been hailed as the classic work on the subject. No other book has managed to relate the aesthetic evolution and technical innovations of photography with such an absorbing combination of clarity, scholarship and enthusiasm. For this fifth edition the entire volume has been completely revised and expanded, and over half of the photographs have been newly selected. Through more than 300 works by such master photographers asWilliam Henry Fox Talbot, Timothy O'Sullivan, Julia Margaret Cameron, Peter Henry Emerson, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange,Walker Evans, Ansel Adams, Brassaï, Henri Cartier- Bresson, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank and Diane Arbus, the author presents a fascinating, comprehensive study of the significant trends and developments in the medium since the first photographs were made 1839. New selections added to this fifth edition include photographs made in colour, from handtinted daguerreotypes to autochromes by Steichen to works by such contemporary masters as Eliot Porter, Ernst Haas,William Eggleston, Stephen Shore and Joel Meyerowitz.
