The Photograph

Graham Clarke

Oxford History of Art

In this rich and fascinating work, Graham Clarke illuminates the photograph's historical development. From the first misty "heliograph" taken by Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1826 to the classic compositions of Cartier-Bresson and Alfred Steiglitz and the striking postmodern strategies of Robert Mapplethorpe, Clarke provides a groundbreaking examination of photography's main subject areas--landscape, the city, portraiture, the body, and reportage. With 130 illustrations, The Photograph offers an up-to-date introduction to the history of photography.
