LOOKING AT PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOHN SZARKOWSKI PDF

Shelves: photography , nonfiction This book was full of striking, impressive, or otherwise important photographs accompanied by a few paragraphs about why each photograph was selected to represent both the history of photography and the overall collection at the Museum of Modern Art.

As the photos near the current day although the latest photo in the book was taken in the late 60s, which is far from contemporary the explanations about their significance are often more convoluted or technical and, for me, less persuasive. Access to photographic equipment and training was largely limited to affluent, or at least middle class, white males, especially in the early days of photography.

Again, a large portion of this is a result of the history of photography itself. For decades photographs only came in black and white, but there have been years of tinted and color film photographs and none of them were represented.

It does a very good job of providing an overview of photography as an art form. Something, more along the lines of absolute analysis. I can say I was not disappointed. Absolutely essential to becoming exposed to what makes a photograph "great.
