9780764162954: Photography: The 50 Most Influential Photographers of All Time (Icons of Culture)

In addition to profiling the most important photographers of past and present, this book presents a capsule history of photography and explores significant trends and developments in the field. Brief biographies with identifying photos include Matthew Brady, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Diane Arbus, Robert Mapplethorpe, Annie Liebovitz, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and 40 other major figures in portraiture, fashion, photojournalism, documentary, landscape, and photographic art. Small in size but filled with information and insights, each Icons of Culture title is a collection of brief, pithy, and enlightening biographies of men and women who have made their mark and left lasting influences in the lively arts. Scattered among these capsule biographies are two-page overviews that examine various aspects of the art. Handsomely designed and accessible to laypersons, these books make fine quick-reference sources while also providing enjoyable reading for inquisitive minds. Illustrations in color and black and white on most two-page spreads.

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
Icons of Culture: Photography presents the spellbinding ideas and images of 50 of the most influential photographers in history and chronicles 10 of the most significant trends and developments in the field.

Following the personal histories and photography of such luminaries from around the world as Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz, and Cecil Beaton, this intriguing book sheds light on the inspirational forces that have shaped the way in which the world views itself.

From portraiture to fashion, and from photojournalism to gallery art, Icons of Culture: Photography offers a clear, concise understanding of the evolution of one of humankind's most versatile and revealing art forms. (front flap)
The medium of photography is now so ubiquitous that we come across thousands of photographic images every day but seldom consider the photographers who created them. This informative and accessible volume helps fill that gap by taking you through the achievements of pioneers in the field, following 50 of the most influential photographers in history and 10 key concepts in the evolution of photography.

From its mechanical beginnings to its development as an art form, and from war journalism to celebrity paparazzi, Icons of Culture: Photography explores the social and technical changes that have made the medium such a pervasive force in our lives.
