Top Customer Reviews

By Robin TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 Mar. 2011
Format: Hardcover
A fascinating book about four hundred photographers that obviously invites comparison with Phaidon's The Photography Book which featured five hundred alphabetically. Both books come from European publishers and reflect a world view of the art though I thought Koetzle's was perhaps a more personal choice.

There is an important visual difference between the two books that might be relevant to potential buyers. The Phaidon book has a simple format of one large photo a page and some short biographic detail about the photographer and it works well enough. The Taschen title presents the photos as facsimiles from a photographer's published books so the actual shots are really large thumbnails, very similar to Parr and Badger's two volume history of the photo book. As a publication designer I love this format but it might not suit everyone especially if they expect to see large photos in their art books.

As well as the book spreads each photographer has a hundred words or so biography and a selective exhibition and book listing. The four hundred chosen by Koetzle for inclusion do seem to me rather personal. Jack Delano and Russell Lee are not included, Julius Shulman is but not Ezra Stoller. Magazine art directors Alexander Liberman and Alexey Brodovitch are here and so is painter David Hockney but James VanDeZee isn't. Still, there are a lot of European and Japanese camera folk I'm not familiar with so turning the pages was a pleasant bit of photographic serendipity.

Had found this book in Waterstones but it was twice the price I found on Amazon. Book is beautiful and is furthering my education about photographers and their styles. Is worth buying if your interest in photography goes past the camera.

Fantastic coffee table / reference book which gives you a short insight into (most of) the photography greats. It's Taschen so the quality is great. It's big and clever and it might just introduce you to some artists you've never heard of. Inspirational...

This fairly comprehensive book was recommended by my college tutor. It is an enjoyable read, especially for those students who wish to broaden their knowledge of other photographers.
