Photography: The Whole Story is a celebration of the most beautiful, meaningful and inspiring photographs that have arisen from this very modern medium. The book begins with a succinct overview of photography, placing it in the context of the social and cultural developments that have taken place globally since its arrival. Organized chronologically, the book then traces the rapid evolution of photographic style, period by period and movement by movement. Illustrated, in-depth essays cover every photographic genre, from the early portraits and tableaux to the digitally manipulated montages, splitsecond sports images, and conceptual photographs of today. The ideas and works of key photographers are assessed to reveal what motivated them, who influenced whom, and what each was striving to achieve. Detailed cultural and individual artist timelines clarify historical context. If you love photography and would like to know more, Photography: The Whole Story is for you.

Review:

It's hard to think of a classic photo that isn't included here, and opened up by skilled and thought-provoking analysis. A beautiful volume. --The Scotsman

An uncommonly impressive and well-written addition to an oversubscribed field --The World of Interiors

The definitive guide for students of photography or those wanting to know how to read a photograph ... a comprehensive overview ... a book rich with favourites and discoveries. --Good Book Guide

Telling the whole story of photography in one book is a pretty tall order, but this hefty volume by Juliet Hacking does a pretty good job! ... a real gem. --My Creative Diva

Superb ... instructive and fascinating ... a wide-ranging, comprehensive and informative book that is also a pleasure to read --Black & White Photography

From the Inside Flap:

Unlike many other artistic media, photography's origins are well documented, as are its ever-changing technologies and applications. Written by an international team of experts, this definitive history of photography looks at every step of the field's dynamic evolution, period by period and movement by movement.
