This review is from: The Changing Face of Portrait Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital (Hardcover)
Published by the Smithsonian and authored by their assistant curator of the photographic collection this beautifully presented book gives an overview of trends in portrait photography over the last 170 years. It does so by reference to the work of ten photographers or groups of photographers represented in the Smithsonian's collection. There are cultural overviews, photographic trends, biographies and in the case of Dorothea Lange an essay on one image. The text is informative, well researched, often amusing and eminently readable. The images are well printed and include many well known examples and others almost unknown except to scholars. If you are interested in the development of photography this is not to be missed.
