" Photography represents a unique combination of art and technology and any study of its history must establish a link between these two disciplines in order to explain effectively the fascinating relationship which has contributed much to the way we see the world around us. "
" History of Photography not only traces the development of the image making processes and the photographic equipment which evolved from them, but also chronicles the lives of the photographers and inventors who helped to shape the course of photographic history, men like Daguerre, Fox, Talbot, Eastman, Fenton and Capa.
This absorbing book also offers a fascinating insight into the effect that photography has had on art, science, communication, education, industry and war.
As well as giving a general survey of the explosion of interest in the artefacts of photography during the past decade, History of Photography presents a profusely illustrated guide to all collectors on sources and conditions of supply, fraud, public collections and museums and photographic literature.
