Product Description

The Photographer's Eye (PB)

By John Szarkowski

John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye, based on a landmark exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in 1964 and first published in 1966, is an excellent introduction to the art of photography. It brings together pictures by both recognized masters and unknown photographers that offer an outline of photography's creative visual language, revealing the extraordinary range of the medium's potential. The pictures are divided into five sections, each an examination of one of the particular sets of choices imposed on the artist with the camera: The Thing Itself, The Detail, The Frame, Time, The Vantage Point. The publication is now available again to a new generation of photographers and lovers of photography in this duotone printing.

Szarkowski, the legendary MoMA curator from 1962 to 1991, has published many influential books. But none more radically and succinctly demonstrates why —as U.S. News & World Report put it in 1990—"whether Americans know it or not," his thinking about photography, "has become our thinking about photography.”
