Masters and Monographs

An encyclopedia of 20th-century photographers and their finest publications

Arranged alphabetically, this biographical encyclopedia features every major photographer of the 20th century alongside her or his most significant monographs.

From the earliest representatives of classical Modernism right up to the present day, Photographers A–Z celebrates those photographers who have distinguished themselves with important publications or exhibitions, and who have made a significant contribution to the culture of the photographic image. The entries include photographers from North America and Europe as well as from Japan, Latin America, Africa, and China.

Richly illustrated with facsimiles from books and magazines, the collection also features photographers working in “applied” areas, whose work is regarded as photographic art. Star turns include Julius Shulman, Terry Richardson, Cindy Sherman, and David LaChapelle.

Inspiring book that shows you a bunch of photographers.

Photos trop médiocres

Guillaume,November 2, 2021
L'idée de base est bonne bien sûr, en revanche l'impression des livres (avec la pliure au centre) au lieu des images elles-mêmes, le tout en petit, gâche terriblement l'intérêt d'un art quand-même d'abord visuel.

Bought this as a present for my partner who had recently started pursuing photography as more than just a hobby. Thought it might be useful to expose them to various different photographers and their unique styles which might inspire them or take an interest in. So so happy I did this as it’s great for flipping through on the days where you’re stuck for inspiration or facing artistic block and a great way to have access to a wide range of photographers’ work you might not have otherwise known!

The Influencers and the Influenced. Images to delight and Inform.

Michael Y.,October 27, 2021
Splendidly illustrated, informative, and illuminating, this book is an ideal, rewarding, run-through of photography at its best.
