Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Photographer’s Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographer’s Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michael’s own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography. Now, in The Photographer’s Vision, he examines the work of photography’s greats, explaining how to look at a photo - and how to learn from looking at it.

- From best-selling author Michael Freeman, with over 90,000 copies of The Photographer’s Eye sold in North America.

- Features work from some of the most distinguished names in photography’s history: Nick Knight, Frederick Henry Evans, Frans Lanting, Tim Page, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Paul Outerbridge, Walker Evans, Cindy Sherman, Elliott Erwitt, Trent Parke, Jeff Wall, Paul Strand, Romano Cagnoni, Horst Faas, James Casebere and many more.

- Provides visually stunning photos as well as intellectually authoritative narrative.
