Photography Speaks Two
Aperture, 1995 - Photography - 149 pages
Photography Speaks II provides a thoughtful introduction to photography through the words and images of artists who have shaped the medium over the last 150 years. Designed in an accessible format that provides a brief biography, an artist's statement, and a representative image, this book offers a personalized history of photography through amusing anecdotes, introspective musings, conversations, war stories, and even verse. Intended as a companion volume to Photography Speaks, which was published to wide acclaim in 1989, Photography Speaks II features seventy nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists selected to augment the first volume of sixty-six artists. Together, these two volumes provide a wide-ranging and engaging history of photography.
