Is photography art, documentary or both? Should images simply reveal the world we live in, or provoke us to think, act and react?

1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die
is a visually arresting and invaluable guide to the history and practice of photography. Sweeping through the arts, fashion, society, war, peace, science and nature, the images in this enticing book are as eye-catching as the commentary is engaging. Some you have seen, others will be unfamiliar, but what all the photographs have in common is their ability to move you, shock you and open up the notion of what it is to be human.

Organized chronologically by the date that each image was made, and featuring a reproduction of each photograph, the selection provides some fascinating and unexpected juxtapositions. Insightful text uncovers the creative process behind each image, revealing its visual, aesthetic and historic significance. Why was the photograph taken? Was it set up? What was the intention? How did the world react?

From Roger Fenton to William Eggleston, from Henry Fox Talbot to Nick Knight, and from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Dorothea Lange, all the photographers featured in this book transgressed the boundaries of the camera with a skill and spirit that helped to develop their field into a highly evocative art form. Packed with information that will entertain, inform, educate and surprise you, 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die is an essential reference for all lovers of photography.
