Synopses & Reviews
Color Photography is a tribute to those photographers who elevate the use of color to an art form. Depending on the photographer, the subject, and the period, color can be beautiful or ugly, showy or neutral.
Color Photography represents an incredible range of styles and genres, including nudes and still lifes, fashion, portraits, and landscapes -- in the work of more than 100 photographers. The collection includes images by: John Rawlings; Louise Dahl-Wolfe; Cecil Beaton; Guy Bourdin; Paolo Roversi; Erwin Blumenfeld; Edward Weston; Martin Parr; Joel Meyerowitz; Andreas Gursky; William Eggleston; Edward Steichen; Annie Leibovitz; Sarah Moon; Horst P. Horst; Sheila Metzner; Paul Outerbridge; and Javier Vallhonrat among others.
This book depicts the development of photography. Under the influence of contemporary art, new subjects have been ushered in, linked to a desire to invent different visual worlds or, conversely, to take a more detailed look at everyday life and the urban environment.
