20th Century Photography by Holly Stuart Hughes



Photography has revolutionized the way in which we see the world, both on a personal level (in allowing us directly to record our family histories), and in a wider way (we can "watch" events as they unfold, and from multiple perspectives). It has also shaped the very way that we look at things, and profoundly affected what we choose to look at. Twentieth-century Photography celebrates this remarkable art form, providing a comprehensive guide to some 70 of the world's best-known, and most influential, photographers and their work, from the early pioneers to today's experimental artists. Arranged alphabetically, each entry contains an incisive appreciation of the photographer and their art, a biographical fact panel, and a selection of their greatest or most interesting work. From Bernice Abbott to Cartier-Bresson, and from Man Ray to Weegee, Twentieth-century Photography gives unique insights into the mix of styles and techniques that have ensured the diversity of this art form, from the earliest prints to modern digital images.
