by David Yorath
Publisher's Description
Readers will smile their way through this amusing, often surprising, always informative illustrated guided tour through the history of photography and the story of the people and the technology behind the images. Filled with fun facts, from photography’s beginnings and the camera obscura and daguerreotype to our present-day digital revolution, the book showcases important photographs that helped document history and define our culture as well as the photographers who took them. With sharp insight and wit, photography is exposed in all its aspects—as fine art, science, a political weapon, a fashion statement, a capitalist tool, a therapeutic aid, and the means of documenting our history and preserving our collective memory.
