“‘A curious, sublime discovery’: this was how photography was described in 1825 by Claude Niépce, the brother of the celebrated Nicéphore Niépce who invented the process itself.”
These are the words that introduce us to the collection of some of the world’s most memorable photographs taken throughout history. PHOTO:BOX presents 250 photos taken by 200 photographers and each photo is accompanied by a description of the photo and a biography of the photographer.
PHOTO:BOX is organized by theme: Reportage, War, Portraits, Nudes, Women, Travel, Cities, Art, Fashion, Still Life, Sport and Nature. Photographers featured include: Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, Nick Knight, Ansel Adams, David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, and Helmut Newton.
PHOTO:BOX is a comprehensive collection of photos of the history of photography that would be the perfect addition to your library if you love photography, art or history. I’ve already spent a few hours flipping through the book and I know I could easily spend many hours more.
PHOTO:BOX is a beautiful hard cover edition with magnetic portfolio binding and you can purchase PHOTO:BOX online at Amazon.com.
