This anthology comprising photographs by 75 renowned artists and texts by 55 leading authors is surely the most comprehensive work of reference on contemporary photography available.
Photography, more than any other medium, has altered the way we see ourselves and changed our perception of art. Pictures of people have become part and parcel of our daily life, influencing us through advertising and media. At the same time, the status of the human image in art has been enhanced, even though photography has called into question traditional views of art. Photography is the "missing link" between man, the image of man, and art.
