Th is compelling book chronicles the most infl uential
ideas that have shaped photography from the invention
of the daguerreotype in the early 19th century up to
the digital revolution and beyond. Entertaining and
intelligent, it provides a fascinating resource to dip into.
Arranged in a broadly chronological order to
show the development of photography, the ideas that
comprise the book include innovative concepts, cultural
and social incidents, technologies, and movements.
Each idea is presented through lively text and arresting
visuals, and explores when the idea fi rst evolved and its
subsequent impact on photography.
