A History of Photography. From 1839 to the Present


In the Beginning There Was Light

Photography throughout the ages

George Eastman’s career developed in a particularly American way. The founder of Kodak progressed from a delivery boy to one of the most important industrialists in American history, and a crucial innovator in photographic history.

Eastman died in 1932, and left his house to the University of Rochester. Since 1949 the site has operated as an international museum of photography and film, and today holds the largest collection of its kind in the world, containing over 400,000 images and negatives—among them the work of such masters as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Ansel Adams.

Home also to 23,000 cinema films, five million film stills, one of the most important silent film collections, technical equipment and a library with 40,000 books on photography and film, the George Eastman House is a pilgrimage site for researchers, photographers, and collectors from all over the world. This volume curates the most impressive images from the collection in chronological order to offer an incomparable overview of photographic history.

Geschichte der Fotografie leicht gemacht

Wolfgang,29 ottobre 2021
Wer sich für das Thema interessiert wird oft mit schwerer Kost konfrontiert. Anders bei diesem Buch. Klare Erklärungen mit den entsprechenden Fotografien … einfach prima.

A History of Photography, interessant und unterhaltsam

Hubertus,29 ottobre 2021
Sehr interessant zu lesen. Innerhalb der letzten 100 Jahre, so viele technische Veränderungen. Vor allem den Teil, wo die digitale Fotografie beschrieben wird, fand ich sehr informativ. Aber auch die Anfänge der Fotografie sind unterhaltsam zu erkunden. Ich sammle Bücher über Fotografie, daher interessant für mich. Wie immer, TASCHEN Verlag ist Qualität und ein guter Preis.

This is a beautiful book with excellent information. Highly Recommended for Students of Photograhy!

A splendid selection

Roxana,4 novembre 2021
The photography selection is splendidly varied; there's something for everyone to fall in love with, all lovingly rendered in the same high quality we've come to expect. But the exploration of the history of the medium, with its techniques and movements, is the true gem. This is a wonderful, informative tour of photography's long history.


Ivan,4 novembre 2021
Informative and easy to read because of its small size history of photography. Everything you could ask for in a small package.
