Photo Journalism

Front Cover

Getty Images has one of the most important photo

collections in the world. The fascinating black-and-white

and color photographs in this volume lead observers

through almost two centuries of the history of photo

journalism. Including both everyday life and the grandest

events, the ideals and fears of the decades are

conveyed through an exciting perspective.

The book will captivate you with its varied and striking

images: viewers will be touched, shocked, amused, or

even moved to tears. Individual chapters provide a clear,

chronological summary of themes such as Revolutions,

Entertainment, the Third Reich or the Role of Women.

Commentary in three languages familiarizes readers

with each topic and points out noteworthy aspects of the

photographs. Photo Journalism is a must for everyone

interested in photography and the events of our times.
