Description

Written by world-renowned photographer, writer and presenter Tom Ang, Photography generously celebrates the most iconic photographs and photographers of the last 200 years.
Tracing the history of photography from its 19th century origins to the digital age, Photography: The Definitive Visual History is the only book of its kind to provide a full account of the people, photographs and technologies that have shaped the history of photography.

From the first black and white photography to photojournalism and contemporary street photography, photography celebrates the most iconic photographs and profiles of the 50 most famous photographers, with special features on the Pulitzer Prize winners and thematic timelines on portrait, war, advertising and photography of fashion.

Dissident classics such as Daguerre’s Boulevard de Temple, Stieglitz’s Steerage, Rosenthal’s Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima and McCurry’s Afghan Girl, this extraordinary reference not only shows incredible photographs, but tells their stories, in depth, and is a must for all those who appreciate the beauty of photography
