5.0 out of 5 stars Great value look at some excellent photographers, 19 Aug 2009
This review is from: Five Great Innovators of Photography: Eadweard Muybridge, Daido Moriyama, Eugène Atget, Gustave Le Gray, László Moholy-Nagy: Eadweard Muybridge, Daido ... Gustave Le Gray, Gabrielle Basilico (55s) (Paperback)
5 very different photographers represented here.

I mainly got this for the Moriyama book, which didn't disappoint, although his work itself is not easily grasped.

I have other Atget books. The one in this set benefits from a well-considered intro by Gerry Badger.

The architectural photographer Basilico was a welcome discovery for me. Crudely, his pictures are a little bit like the Dusseldorf school with some of mysterious quality of de Chirico's paintings. The closest thing in photography to Antonioni's films.

I shouldn't comment on the Le Gray (a contemporary of Atget) or Muybridge (should need little introduction) books as I haven't looked at them much yet. In any case the set is great value.
