Twentieth Century Photography20th Century Photography: A Complete Guide to the Greatest Artists of the Photographic Age Twentieth Century Photography is an indispensable and comprehensive guide to over 70 of the world's best-known photographers, from the pioneers of the early part of the century to the experimental artists who will take us into the future. Arranged in alphabetical order by photographer, each entry contains a selection of sumptuous reproductions of some of the photographer's most interesting and representative works. In addition there is an incisive appreciation of each of these most well-known or ground-breaking artists, including the technical background to their pictures, and a key facts panel detailing biographical details and the development of each photographer's career. History Of Photography.

The Photography BookThe Photography Book The concept for this book is simple: 500 photographers, 500 pages. Arranged alphabetically, each of the photographers, from contemporary Dutch cameraman Hans Aarsman to mid-20th-century New York snap-happy James Van Der Zee, gets a full, oversized page. On it is a large, expertly reproduced image and a concise caption packed with information about the photographer and his or her work. The coincidental alignment of photos of different eras and aesthetic sensibilities provides unusual and exciting contrasts that add an extra dimension to readers' perception of the work. Rineke Dijkstra's colour-saturated shot of a bikini-clad beachgoer in South Carolina faces a Mike Disfarmer portrait of a rural Arkansas couple in 1943. Imogen Cunningham's inimitable Nude is here, along with a more surprising image, My Mother, Bolton Abbey, and Yorkshire, a colour-photo collage by painter David Hockney. History Of Photography.
