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.

About the Publisher
Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission was to create a ‘museum without walls’ and to make accessible to a large reading public the world of art and the research of top scholars. To reflect its international outlook the name for the company linked the rivers flowing through London and New York, represented in its logo by two dolphins symbolizing friendship and intelligence, one facing east, one west, suggesting a connection between the Old World and the New. Today, still an independent, family-owned company, Thames & Hudson is one of the world’s leading publishers of illustrated books with over 2,000 titles in print. They publish high-quality books across ‎all areas of visual creativity: the arts (fine, applied, decorative, performing), architecture, design, photography, fashion, film and music, and also archaeology, history and popular culture.
