American Images: Photography 1945-1980
by Peter Turner
Publisher's Description
"The streetwise imagery of the beat generation, the avant-garde expressionism of the sixties, and the development of the photographer as an introspective artist--these are some of the themes used to reveal the importance of photography in American culture as a whole."--the publisher. The work of seventy-nine photographers is presented here, organized in three sections: "The Photographer as Professional (1945-1959)," "Photography in Transition (1959-1969)," and "The Photographer as Artist (1969-1980)." This is an important addition to the literature on American photography since World War II.
