Publisher Comments:

The greatest photographers of the last 100 years

A comprehensive overview of the most influential photographers of the last century and their finest monographs: Arranged alphabetically, this biographical encyclopedia features every major photographer and photographic artist of the 20th century, from the earliest representatives of classical Modernism right up to the immediate present.

Richly illustrated with facsimiles from books and magazines, this book includes all the major photographers of the last hundred years—especially those who have distinguished themselves with important publications or exhibitions, or who have made a significant contribution to the culture of the photographic image. While most of the 400-plus entries feature North American or European photographers, the scope is worldwide, with significant emphasis on the photography of Japan and Latin America, Africa and China.

Photography in Print A-Z focuses on photographic images and culture, but also features photographers working in "applied" areas, whose work goes beyond the merely illustrative, and is regarded as photographic art or is conserved by major museums, such as Julius Shulman, Terry Richardson, Cindy Sherman, and David LaChapelle, etc.

Featured photographers include:

Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Elmer Batters, Peter Beard, Cecil Beaton, Harry Benson, Werner Bischof, Guy Bourdin, Bill Brandt, Robert Capa, Larry Clark, William Claxton, Anton Corbijn, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Robert Doisneau, William Eggleston, Ron Galella, Nan Goldin, Jean-Paul Goude, John Heartfield, George Hoyningen-Huene, William Klein, Nick Knight, Eric Kroll, Neil Leifer, Peter Lindbergh, Dora Maar, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mary Ellen Mark, Don McCullin, Steven Meisel, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Helmut Newton, Martin Parr, Irving Penn, Pierre et Gilles, Bettina Rheims, Leni Riefenstahl, Sebastiao Salgado, Larry Schiller, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Jeanloup Sieff, Lord Snowdon, Bert Stern, Larry Sultan, Mario Testino, Wolfgang Tillmans, Ellen von Unwerth, Andy Warhol, Albert Watson, Bruce Weber, Weegee, and Gary Winogrand, among many others.
