PHOTOGRAPHY: THE WHOLE STORY
Category: Photography essay
Photography: The Whole Story celebrates the most beautiful, meaningful and inspiring photographs that have arisen from this very modern medium – whose name, meaning 'writing with light', hints at its potential to capture the significant moments in our lives. The book begins with a succinct overview of photography, placing it in the context of the social and cultural developments that have taken place globally since its arrival. It then traces the evolution of photographic style, period by period, while in-depth illustrated essays cover every photographic genre, from early portraits and tableaux to today's digitally manipulated photographs.
