Photography: The Definitive Visual History

 

This is a really cool book if you like historical photographs or the history of photographs.Very informative of the history of the photography. Being in Rochester,NY which you may or may not know is the home of what “was” the premier photography company in the world KODAK. I can’t help but think of the demise of that company and for that matter the death of film and the rise of digital photography. But before digital there was film. This book shows what that film can do. George Eastman would love this book.

Dissecting classics such as Daguerre’s Boulevard de Temple, Stieglitz’s The Steerage, Rosenthal’s Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, and McCurry’s Afghan Girl, this amazing reference not only showcases incredible photographs, but tells their stories, in-depth, and is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the beauty of photography.

These days everyone is an expert with their Iphones ,selfies and Instagram.  About the only time you see people hire a professional Photographer is for a wedding. While looking for those pros there are places like Bidvine you can go to. But then you can always depend on that Iphone for your selfies.
