Anne Robinson, Karen Saxby
This list is extremely well chosen: it includes the most important figures working in the medium of photography from the beginning of the medium right up to the present, and across the worlds of art and journalism. Each title tells the story of the photographer with the chronologically-presented photographs showing the development of their ideas and their work. The text tells the reader what they need to know about the photographer and is written in a lively and accessible way by experts who inspire the reader with their enthusiasm and understanding of the photographer and their work. Each book functions as an ideal introduction to the given photographer for newcomers to photography but will also appeal to those with an already-established interest.
