Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Behind every great photograph is a story.  For every noteworthy image there are many more images taken before and after "the moment" that are often left unseen to anyone but the photographer himself.

Featuring a diverse collection of original contact sheets from over forty international photographers, The Contact Sheet allows in-depth insight into the subject matter and the photographic process — often revealing a deeper story that has not been told.  From William Claxton to William Wegman the photographers in this collection are both well-known names as well as up-and-coming artists, making this an indespensable addition to the library of any serious lover of photography.

Featuring over forty international photographers, including:  William Claxton, Chuck Close, Michel Comte, Anton Corbijn, Imogen Cunningham, David Doubilet, Elliot Erwitt, Nan Goldin, Nadav Kander, Art Kane, David Hume Kennerly, Dorothea Lange, Saul Leiter, Peter Lindbergh, Jerry McMillan, Joel Meyerowitz, Richard Misrach, Arnold Newman, Paul Outerbridge, Martin Parr, Ed Ruscha, Julius Shulman, Jeanloup Sieff, Jerry Uelsmann and William Wegman

Synopsis:

The Contact Sheet offers a deeper look into the most iconic photographs of our times, by revealing the rarely and often never before seen contact sheets from the original photo sessions.

Synopsis:

When a famous photographer creates a noteworthy photograph, many images are taken before and after the moment are left unseen to anyone but the photographer himself. When the photographer creates an extraordinary or famous photograph, these unseen images take on even more importance. Examining the contact sheets from these original photographic sessions allows in depth insight into the subject matter, the photographic process, and often reveals a deeper story that has never been told. Over forty iconic photographs by world famous photographers are examined in detail in The Contact Sheet - complete with short interviews and background details on the sessions themselves. The Contact Sheet is a must have for any serious lover of fine photography.
