Summary
  • "An American Century of Photography is an introduction to, and an original exploration of, the most vital age of American photography, which began just over a century ago with the advent of the dry-plate technology and the hand camera. Now, at the turn of the twenty-first century, photography is in the midst of another major technological change, one brought on by the impact of the computer. This remarkable evolution is documented here through a detailed discussion of important artists, images, and ideas. Accompanying the definitive text are state-of-the-art reproductions of 499 works, ranging from such iconic photographs as Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother to a host of previously little-known or unpublished images
  • The variety of the selection greatly expands our understanding of the complexities and riches of American photography from the late nineteenth century to the present." "The book accompanies a major traveling exhibition of masterworks from the Hallmark Photographic Collection, one of the most renowned holdings of its kind in the world."--Jacket
