Julia Margaret Cameron
Phaidon Incorporated Limited, 2001 - Photography - 128 pages
Photography is the visual medium of the modern world. As a means of recording, and as an art form in its own right, it pervades our lives and shapes our perceptions.
55 is a new series of beautifully produced, pocket-sized books that acknowledge and celebrate all styles and all aspects of photography.
Just as Penguin books found a new market for fiction in the 1930s, so, at the start of a new century, Phaidon 55s, accessible to everyone, will reach a new visually aware contemporary audience. Each volume of 128 pages focuses on the life's work of an individual master and contains an informative introduction and 55 key works accompanied by extended captions.
As part of an ongoing program, each 55 offers a story of modern life.
