Synopsis:
When The Photography Book was first published in 1997, it was widely acclaimed as the most important reference book ever on its subject. This 2000 mini-edition has all the visual energy and compelling insights of the original, but in a light and truly portable format that makes it ideal for both dipping into and using as a serious sourcebook. Its 500 superb images represent the world's best photographers and encompass every sort of photography, from pictures of famous events (such as the Royal Wedding and the first landing on the moon), to familiar shots by masters of photography (such as Bill Brandt and Henri Cartier-Bresson). Fashion, sports, natural history, reportage and society portraiture are all represented, as well as social documentary and art. The host of talented names--ranging from William Henry Fox Talbot to David Bailey and Diane Arbus--spans the whole history of photography. Arranged alphabetically by photographer, each full-page image is accompanied by illuminating text that gives a useful insight into the work and its creator, as well as extensive cross-references to others working in the same field or style. Glossaries of technical terms and movements, as well as a directory of museums and galleries are included in the back of the book to provide a fully comprehensive and self-contained volume.
