This is a gorgeous cornerstone volume that celebrates the camera and the art of the photograph. It spans almost 200 years of progress, from the first image ever caught to the instantaneous pictures of today's digital cameras. It includes descriptions of more than 350 cameras plus more than 100 photographs, adverts and drawings. Cameras and what they capture have forever changed our perception of the world and of ourselves. This gorgeous cornerstone volume, created in collaboration with the world-famous George Eastman House, celebrates the camera and the art of the photograph. It spans almost two hundred years of progress, from the first faint image ever caught to the instantaneous pictures snapped by today's state-of-the-art digital equipment. The informative narrative by Todd Gustavson traces the camera's development, the lives of its brilliant but often eccentric inventors and the artists behind the lens. Images and highly descriptive captions for more than 350 cameras from the George Eastman House Collection, plus more than 100 historic photos, ads and drawings, complement the text. It also includes a foreword by the Director of George Eastman House and essays by Steve Sasson and Alexis Gerard.
