Photography (Art Essentials), David Bate

€15.00
DESCRIPTION

In an innovative approach, this illuminating guide presents photography as wide-ranging, diverse and accessible, drawing on both famous and lesser-known figures in the history of the medium. Photography specialist David Bate guides the reader through the photographs, exhibitions and photobooks that have been pivotal to the history of photography, contributing to vital shifts in the artform’s outlook, values and approach.

In art history, particular works are typically cited as examples of specific styles; here individual photographs are identified as historic examples of key art movements, which often developed precisely because of these works. Among the examples selected are many images that have had a profound impact across the globe, so presenting a thoroughly inclusive and diverse account of the contributions of photographers from the birth of photography to the present day.

Authoritative and engaging, this book also features a reference section with suggestions for further reading and a glossary of photography terms.
