Synopsis: This superb volyme is more than a homage to the Seventh Wonder. It is also a promenade through the history of photography.
From the Publisher: The Great Pyramids of Giza--the Seventh Wonder of the World--are among the most mysterious and beautiful constructions of Man.
Since the invention of photography in 1839, cameras have been set up in front of the three great pyramids, bringing their image to the masses in other countries. And since the 1960s, the phenomenal increase in tourism has confirmed the pyramids as one of the world's leading attractions. Giza is once more an obligatory stop for photographers, artists, architects and journalists, all falling under the influence of Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus.
This superb volume is more than an homage to the Seventh Wonder: it is also a promenade through the history of photography. Full of original documents, early photographs, different interpretations of the same shot, poetry, tragedy ad comedy, the book includes work by (among others) Henri Cartier-Bresson, Maxime Du Camp Josef Koudelka and Duane Michals, all reproduced with the utmost attention to detail and quality.
