Format: Hardcover
A great little book which serves as a fun first guide to the history of photography. No more weighty pretenious tomes but a put-in-your pocket and go book. The light style belies the factual nature but they are all here - Weegee, Capa, Lange et al. The actual packaging of the book also is clever as the folded cover can be used as a bookmark - so no excuse for turned down pages so beloved by many readers! Crash bang up to date and doesn't take a wallop out your wallet.

As a photography lecturer, I found this book accessible, unpretentious and right up to date. I can't believe he gets so much information in so small a book and raises a smile as often as he does. I recommend this book to all my students as an excellent intro to the history and contexts of photography. I wish Dave Yorath would use this small book as a template for a more extended study.

a quick overview on the history of photography 18 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
good if you want a quick overview on basically everything in photography. it IS a crash course. it's sometimes a little too detailed, however. instead of giving you a quick overview on every topic, it gives you a detailed overview into a specific part of that topic, which isnt always too helpful. then there is a non-relating timeline at the top of each page, which is pretty unnecessary, but it's there. it does go into about every artistic aspect of photography though, and the book does have quite a few interesting facts, which is fun. overall, i'd say it's a good read if you're up to it. enjoy.
a fun intro to the history of photography 19 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a cute, little book with fun, interesting facts on the history of photography. It gives a nice overview on a variety of topics from the beginning of photography to present. It is by no means a comprehensive history book and it's not a how to book, but if you would like a quick background on photography's beginning, this does it. If you are looking for a comprehensive history text, go elsewhere, spend more and get a much larger book. I have taught photo-history and like the quick, easy-to-read, fun insight. It's a good book for those looking for an intro to the history of photography.
