Photography: A Cultural History
by Mary Warner Marien
Publisher's Description
This fine new history of photography owes its genesis and refinement to years spent in the classroom. In her brief preface, Marien lays out some of the goals of the text and repeatedly harkens back to lessons learned from her students, that "they do not dislike history, but are instead hungry for it," and "that today's students are puzzled by the lengthy struggle waged...to have photography accepted as an art form." Her fresh reading and presentation are what make this book vital; ultimately, the medium itself is rejuvenated by surveys such as this.
