The stories behind historys most extraordinary photographs (TASCHENs 25th anniversary special edition)
Photographs have a strange and powerful way of shaping the way we see the world and influencing our perceptions of reality. To demonstrate the unique and profound influence on culture and society that photographs have, Photo Icons puts the most important landmarks in the history of photography under the microscope.
Each chapter of this special edition focuses on a single image which is described and analyzed in detail, in aesthetic, historical, and artistic contexts. The book begins with the very first permanent images (Nicephore Niepces 1827 eight-hour-exposure rooftop picture and Louis Daguerres famous 1839 street scene) and takes the reader up through the present day, via the avant-garde photography of the 1920s and works such as Dorothea Langes Migrant Mother (1936), Robert Doisneaus Kiss in Front of City Hall (1950), and Martin Parrs New European photography.
The author: Hans-Michael Koetzle is a Munich-based freelance author and journalist, focusing mainly on history and the aesthetics of photography. He has published numerous books on photography and has been editor-in-chief of the magazine Leica World since 1996.
