Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Volume I begins with the very first permanent images (Nicéphore Niépce's 1827 8-hour-exposure rooftop picture and Louis Daguerre's famous 1839 street scene) and takes the reader up through the avant-garde photography of the 1920s.
