Jane Applebee, January 3, 2007 (view all comments by Jane Applebee)
This is a great introduction to the history of photography. Szarkowski's essays are pithy, thoughtful and sometimes almost whimsical. One photo and one essay per page, that is the deal thoughout, no long boring diatribes, if that is how you see those multipage essays - I do. The production quality of the prints is very high and his selections interesting, choosing not always the the better known prints of famous photographers and including many photographers you may never have heard of. It is a wonderful foundation to build from and a treasure to own.
