This gorgeous cornerstone volume celebrating the camera and the art of the photograph, created in collaboration with the George Eastman House, spans almost 200 years, from the first faint image ever caught to today's state-of-the-art digital equipment. The informative narrative by Todd Gustavson--including insightful essays by Steve Sasson (inventor of the digital camera) and Alexis Gerard (visionary founder of Future Image Inc.)--traces the camera's development, the lives of its inventors, and the artists behind the lens. Images of more than 350 cameras from the George Eastman House Collection, plus historic photos, ads, and drawings, complement the text.
