Description

This third volume in Skira's History of Photography series serves as a major reference in the field of photography. The third volume (1941-1980) of the Skira History of Photography series considers the years signed by the revolution of color that marked the start of a radical change in the very nature of amateur photography. At the same time, through photojournalism, photography became a mirror of society and a tool for attempts to change it. This monograph traces the historical evolution of photography, focusing on artists such as Helen Levitt, Weegee, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Josef Sudek, William Klein, Robert Frank, Richard Avedon, Shomei Tomatsu, William Eugene Smith, Gerhard Richter, Bernhard and Hilla Becher, Ugo Mulas, Ed Ruscha, and Larry Clark, just to name a few. The essays provide an in-depth discussion of some of the primary themes of the historical period: the evolution of documentary photography between 1950 and 1980, the color revolution, and the relationship between photography and conceptual art.show more
