Product Description

Review

"In January 1950, "Life "magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith came to Wales and took one of his great pictures--one of the great pictures of twentieth-century photojournalism. Paul Cabuts uses this event as the starting point for a terrific and meticulously researched journey of discovery about our photographic culture. The story he tells is essential reading not just for those of us who enjoy photographs, but for all who are interested in Welsh culture and its dissemination around the world."--Daniel Meadows, Cardiff University

As a practising artist I came across this photographer's work only to discover that he had taken photographs of the mining community in South Wales. I was intrigued and happy to find that there was a book available on this subject.

Paul Cabuts' book isn't intended to be a book about Eugene Smith. It looks at the important and ongoing role that photography has played in documenting the South Wales' Valleys. The writing is scholarly, but also very accessible. The book charts the move away from commissioned photo-stories for the prevailing magazines towards an independent photographic practice, and latterly the burgeoning interest in documentary photography as art. It's both an enjoyable read and very informative, and a fascinating introduction to the subject. Highly recommended.

This book is very misleading, if you want to read a book about Paul Cabut this book is suitable, if you want a book on Eugene Smith, forget it, 3 of the massive amount of 16 images are Smiths, this book has most definately been written by a university academic. 15 pages are bibliography, come on this is not a dissertation you are writing! More images from the valleys by Smith would have been very nice. Very over priced for what it is, however, a good point the book is very well made hence i gave it a star for this.
