Alfred Stieglitz: Photographs and Writings
National Gallery of Art/Callaway Editions
"The Meaning of the Idea Photography" -- Alfred Stieglitz
This book clearly deserves many more than five stars. It is one of the most remarkable expressions about and by an artist in any genre that I have ever seen. Before going further, let me caution those who are offended by all forms of nudity that this book contains many female nudes. These are all tastefully done, and will not offend those who look with a desire to see the essence of beauty. ...

Working in the mid-nineteenth century with a novel invention - the camera - Fenton was probably the first to see the possibilities of photography as art. This magnificent volume shares 85 of the artist's finest photographs, including ...

Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans, Expanded Edition
National Gallery Of Art, Washington/Steidl
Majesterial; A Masterpiece!
Ms Greenough has outdone herself in creating the most thorough, broadest, and deepest attempt to analyze a single work of art. This book sets a new standard for what a similarly intended book can be, not just for one work by one artist, but books about a single artist, a group, or a genre of art. There are several brilliant critical books on any number of artists now. But this one, even at ...
The Art of the American Snapshot, 1888-1978
Princeton University Press
A glorious exploration
Sir John F. Herschel gets credit for coining the word "snapshot" in 1860; "The possibility of taking a photograph, as it were by a snap-shot -- of securing a picture in a tenth of a second of time." (He also coined "photography" itself, and was the first to apply "negative" and "positives" to photography.) Given his wide ranging interests, I'm sure he would have loved this book as much as I do. ...
Alfred Stieglitz: The Key Set - Volume I & II: The Alfred Stieglitz Collection of Photographs
Sarah et al. Greenough
Harry N. Abrams
My sister is a photographer and this book a joint present among sisters. We all had to peek at the nearly 1700 photographs in this 20 pound book (two volumes) before we gave it to her! Stieglitz is one of the most instrumental photographers of the late 19th and early 20th century. This compilation of his work is exquisite. The contrasting images, the use of light to make a point--even to a ...
Irving Penn: Platinum Prints
Yale University Press
The first time I saw a photography of Irving Penn was in a Brochure advertising the exhibition at the National Gallery this summer. At that moment I knew I had to make a special trip back to D.C.. The platinum prints were breathtaking. I stood in front of each print for minutes; transported to another world. I felt as I could converse with the subjects; as if their essence had been revealed to ...

W. Bruce Lundberg
Charta/American Academy in Rome
By 1860, photography in Rome was undergoing dramatic change. The level of detail made possible by new glass wet plate and albumen techniques encouraged photographers to take a documentary approach, focusing on architectural fragments, transitional spaces like stairways, even citizens going blurrily about their daily business--in short, on everything but the city's oft-photographed basilicas and ruins. The candid, frequently off-balance images ...
