Ian Jeffrey is a superb guide in this profusely illustrated introduction to the appreciation of photography as an art form.  Novices and experts alike will gain a deeper understanding of great photographers and their work, as Jeffrey decodes key images and provides essential biographical and historical background. Profiles of more than 100 major photographers, including Alfred Stieglitz, Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Paul Strand, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, highlight particular examples of styles and movements throughout the history of the medium. Each entry includes a concise biography along with an illuminating discussion of key works and nuggets of contextual information.

 

How to Read a Photograph: Lessons from Master Photographers is the third book in Abrams successful series that includes How to Read a Painting and How to Read a Modern Painting.

Synopsis:

Eroticism is a truly universal topic, a subject that has always fascinated humankind. Erotic art is telling: It reveals much about an era, a culture, and psychology; it can be sweet, aggressive, soothing, or wild. Erotic Art explores the history of erotic art and presents paintings, drawings, etchings, sculptures, and more by Titian, Picasso, and Keith Haring, by Bernini, Rodin, and Giacometti, and from ancient Greece, Rome, China, Japan, India, and the Middle East. Reproduced in lush color with close-up details, the art is accompanied by texts that offer insights into how to read the different works. In this book, erotic art gives up its secrets.

Praise for How to Read Erotic Art:

"The lush illustrations together with the texts . . . make How to Read Erotic Art an informative, fun, and sexy addition to any collection." —The Huffington Post

Synopsis:

Filled with great masterpieces by such artists as Botticelli, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Mantegna, and Titian, How to Read Italian Renaissance Painting takes the reader into their world. As in the internationally successful and innovative How to Read a Painting, each spread uses an important painting as a way to explain a key concept, with numerous large details. Here, 180 works illuminate key ideas in Renaissance painting, from "perpective" and "the golden section" to "grace" and "symbolism." In addition, there are brief biographies of the major artists. The result is an original, accessible, and affordable volume that offers an introduction into the art and culture of the Italian Renaissance.
