Meet 18 pioneers of twentieth- and twenty-first-century photography and explore their most powerful images.
From Cecil Beaton’s glamorous celebrity shots to Robert Capa’s gritty wartime images, this remarkable collection gathers the finest work of 18 groundbreaking photographers. Each person represented is a master of the art, and the diverse, international selection includes Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Robert Doisneau, Sebastião Salgado, Werner Bischof, Abbas Attar, and Annie Leibovitz. On page after page, we see how they documented history, developed an individual aesthetic, and conveyed a specific vision of reality through the subjects, techniques, and styles they embraced.
