Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Photographs have a strange and powerful way of shaping the way we see the world and influencing our perceptions of reality. To demonstrate the unique and profound influence on culture and society that photographs have, Photo Icons puts the most important landmarks in the history of photography under the microscope.

Each chapter focuses on a single image which is described and analyzed in detail, in aesthetic, historical, and artistic contexts.

Volume II explores works such as Dorothea Lange's "Migrant Mother" (1936) and Robert Doisneau's "Kiss in Front of City Hall" (1950), up through Martin Parr's "New European photography."

Synopsis:

History's most extraordinary photographs with the stories behind the pictures. A new title in Taschen's successful Icons series.
