For one or two semester courses in the History of Photography.


A chronological history of photography ranging from the medium’s beginnings to the present, with emphasis on the major inventions and image makers and the social and cultural settings in which photography flourished.


The book was written to introduce students to photography. It does not require that students possess any technical know-how and can be taught without referring to techniques in photography. Incorporating the latest research and international uses of photography, the text surveys the history of photography in such a way that students can gauge the medium's long-term multifold developments and see the historical and intellectual contexts in which photographers lived and worked. It also provides a unique focus on contemporary photo-based work and electronic media.
