Photography: A Cultural History
Here is the history weve 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 youre hooked ... and its free from tormenting academic jargon. Camera Arts This groundbreaking survey of international photography, which examines the discipline across the full range of its uses by both professionals and amateurs, has been expanded and brought up to date for this second edition. 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. These broad topics complement a fully developed cultural context whose emphasis is more on key ideas than individuals. The author also pays close attention to how contemporary practitioners, commentators and beholders have talked about specific works, the nature of photography and the photographers changing role in society.

Photography: a cultural historyUser Review - Book Verdict
Marien (fine arts, Syracuse Univ.) winnows the abundant photographic production of the mid-19th to the late 20th centuries to harvest a concise and essential chronology of the medium's technologies and aesthetics. She opens with photography's prehistory, examining the many figures, theories, and experiments leading to its invention and thus extending and deepening the presentation in Naomi Rosenblum's A World History of Photography, which begins in 1839. She carefully considers the import of photography's initial public reception and considers how, in this age of aesthetic and ideological pluralism, photography influences our experiences of the world. Ambitious in her scope, she ranges worldwide, offering detailed profiles of regional styles and previously under-recognized photographers. She also departs from the traditional "grand narrative" of other retrospective histories to expose the sometimes myriad ideological paths within a particular historical or aesthetic debate. With 600 illustrations, 166 in color, this volume is highly recommended for public and academic libraries.-Savannah Schroll, formerly with Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC ...
