"Here is the history we've been waiting for... erudite and entertaining... she shows how pictures really did change our world. Her shrewd selection of over 600 fascinating photos (many in colour) illustrate a history that meets the ultimate test: open to any page and you're hooked... and it's free from tormenting academic jargon." Camera Arts "Indeed, this book represents an excellent visual introduction to photography... it's lucid, well argued and there's enough sparkle to keep you reading right up until the end. I could not be more excited about this book. Like photography itself, it's all things to all people, a visual feast, an in-depth critique of different artists and movements, and a series of bite-sized chunks that give a dazzling impression of photography's diversity." Blueprint "This inclusive, well thought out and weighty volume, is an invaluable reference book for all serious students, scholars and aficionados of photography. Dr. Marien's inclusive approach presents a coherent, fascinating and detailed view of the medium in all its cultural manifestations, including sections on its development outside Europe and America." Art Newspaper "This is a high-quality publication that updates and extends all earlier books on similar topics... Summing Up: Essential." Choice "This is probably as comprehensive an account of the medium as you will find, and this, combined with the painstaking and insightful way the story has been incorporated into the development of the wider world, makes the book nothing short of indispensable." RSA Journal"
This is a groundbreaking survey of international photography, which examines the discipline across the full range of its uses by both professionals and amateurs. Each of the eight chapters takes a period of up to forty years and examines the medium through the lenses of art, science, social science, travel, war, fashion, the mass media and individual practitioners.
