The History of Photography: An Overview

The History of Photography: An Overview by Focal Press at Spring Brook Audio. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last.

Product Description & Reviews

Provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the major developments in photography, the contributions of both individual photographers and photographic movements and the impact of photography on society. Each chapter explores a separate topicfrom inception to the present. In 1839, the French government announced a major scientific breakthrough: one Louis Daguerre had created a lasting image on a metal plate. Even the wily inventor--who wanted to patent the process before the government stepped in and decided to offer it free to one and all--could not have imagined how his discovery would change and shape the world. Alma Davenport discusses photography as a political and sociological tool in this comprehensive study, and shows how it has altered our lives. She traces its development from calotypes (William Talbot perfected photographic paper even before the Daguerreotype) to tintypes to hand-held cameras and early color experiments, and introduces us to the masters of art and documentary photography.
