Publisher's Note
A history of modern American photography surveys major developments in photographic theory, trends, method, and style, as well as the works of noted American photographers, from 1945 to the present, American Photography is the first book-length critical history of modern American photography which examines all the significant developments in photographic theory, method and style of the past 40 years: from the pioneering work of Stieglitz, Steichen, Adams, and Strand to current experimentation incorporating language into photography. Beginning with a discussion of American archaetypes, the text proceeds chronologically with a look at the founding of Aperture magazine and the publication of Robert Frank's The Americans in the 50s, the new theories expounded by Szarkowski, Winograd, and others in the 60s, the return to formalism during the 70s and 80s, and much more. The more than 330 illustrations were carefully chosen to highlight the trends featured in the text and to show photography's interaction with American society., This book provides the first important survey of the field. Heavily illustrated and filled with insightful and intimate detail, the book reaches back briefly to the nineteenth and the first decades of the twentieth century to establish the pantheon of native master and to define what is truly 'American' in the nation's photography.
