Reading American Photographs: Images As History-Mathew Brady to Walker Evans
by Alan Trachtenberg
Publisher's Description
In this book, Trachtenberg provides a broad new perspective on a cluster of major American photographers--Brady, O'Sullivan, Stieglitz, Hine, and Evans--who have played significant roles in shaping our perception of the American past. He considers a documentary "narrative" (a series of photographs arranged in deliberate sequence. The result is an eloquent re-evaluation of the photographic medium which reveals as much about social, cultural and intellectual history as influenced photography as it does about the medium itself.
