A World History Of Photography


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

An up-to-date edition of the authoritative history of photography - widely embraced by both students and general readers. Naomi Rosenblum's classic history of photography traces the evolution of this young art form chronologically and thematically. Exploring the diverse roles that photography has played in the communication of ideas, Rosenblum devotes special attention to topics such as portraiture, documentation, advertising, and photojournalism, and to the camera as a means of personal artistic expression. Her text is illustrated with nearly nine hundred images by photographers both celebrated and little known, arranged in stimulating juxtapositions that illuminate their visual power. This fifth edition of A World History of Photography is substantively revised and updated. The photography of the past several decades is reevaluated from a contemporary perspective, and international developments are covered in greater detail. The main strands of today's complex universe of digital image-making are masterfully summarised and placed in their historical context, and the careers of representative contemporary photographers are studied in depth. Thoughtfully written, carefully and abundantly illustrated, and provided with a full apparatus - including a chronology, glossary, and annotated bibliography - Rosenblum's volume remains the indispensable work on its subject. AUTHORS: Naomi Rosenblum, recognized as a pioneering historian of photography, holds a PhD from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her numerous other works include A History of Women Photographers. Diana Stoll, an independent curator, writer, and editor, was formerly senior editor at Aperture.

A History Of Women Photographers


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In this landmark volume, Rosenblum (A World History of Photography) examines sympathetically the achievements of women in photography since its invention in 1839, and highlights society's failure to give them appropriate recognition. One research obstacle the author encountered was the 19th-century practice of men taking credit for work done by women. Here is work from 250 female camera artists, from Julia Margaret Cameron (b. 1815) to Annie Leibovitz (b. 1949), who, despite strong cultural resistance, mastered everything from early wet-plate views and portraits to 35 millimeter photojournalism, often initiating aesthetic and commercial improvements. Her chronicle of women's part in each era's artistic movements and media transitions, plus capsule biographies with an in-depth bibliography and index, make this a seminal reference work. The author's choice of 263 photographs seems to favor the esoteric, bringing to light a largely unknown world in vivid originality and broad archival conception.

The History Of Photography


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

First published in 1991, The History of Photography explores the people, technology, and imagery that have made photography such a tremendous force in modern culture. As technology has improved, the level to which society depends upon photography increases. Over the past 150 years, photographers and their works have taught, inspired, angered, and spurred several generations toward social and political action. This interdependence between society and the photographic image continues to strengthen and evolve. This book develops specific themes from pre-photography to the present. The reader will develop a deeper understanding of how major photographers have viewed their work, how attitudes toward photography have changed, and how photography has influenced world perceptions and events.
