"From the cameras of the world's top photographers, illuminating images present a sweeping picture of human experience, showing photography as a visual history of the 20th century. Includes profiles of history's most memorable photographers" (Ingram). Actually, more than a standard chronology, "Timeframes" uses a thematic structure to show the relationship between photography and the society that it both documents and shapes. In ten thematic chapters, the book explores the history of photography, from the technological brilliance and the casual strangeness of reportage to the glamorous world of the fashion shoot and the naked bravery of the documentary photographers of war. A brilliant achievement, this is a "must-have" title for photography collectors. This title is no longer in print as a hardcover and is now collectible. This copy has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 200 images, 40 color plates, 180 black-and-white illustrations. Some of the world's greatest photographers. A flawless copy. . ISBN 0817460152. $30.00
