Description - Photography Speaks by Brooks Johnson
Produced in conjunction with the preeminent Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, Aperture's essential series Photography Speaks will be reissued as one newly revised and expanded edition in the fall of 2004. From Matthew Brady to Cindy Sherman, 150 artists are represented in this new, combined volume of Photography Speaks, spanning the entire history of the medium. This compendium contains biographical information and an original statement from each artist, accompanied by an example of their work. This vast collection includes the writing of such diverse photographers as William Henry Fox Talbot, Eugene Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, Lewis Hine, August Sander, Man Ray, Weegee, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Robert Heinecken, and Lucas Samaras. New additions include selections from Nadar, William Eggleston, Eikoh Hosoe, Gordon Parks, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Christian Boltanski, and Rineke Dijkstra. The contributors expound upon topics such as their method and intentions, the state of the arts, or the medium itself.
Photography Speaks has been and will continue to be a vital reference source, an enduring testament to the art of photography and an engrossing text for artists and enthusiasts alike.
