Product description

Review

The first coherent national treatment of American photography, its scope extends beyond previous histories. Orvell offers convincing justification for American photography in the technological, self-fashioning, realistic and democratic idiosyncrasies of both medium and nation. (Journal of American Studies)

Coverage is remarkably comprehensive ... The research apparatus of the book is excellent ... The prose is clear and engaging and at points compelling ... From his [Orvell's] best chapter on photography and society emerges a voice which is not simply descriptive but urgent. (Journal of American Studies)

consistently readable and frequently stimulating (Burlington Magazine)

A fine introduction, and stimulating to readers already familiar with the riches of American camera work (Professor Mick Gidley, University of Leeds. 01/06/2002)

What a terrific book!...Rich references to literature, history, art, and popular culture make this story come alive. (Mary Panzer, Author of Matthew Brady and the Image of History, and former curator of photographs for the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery. 22/07/02)
