N. Rosenblum, A World History of Photography (New York, 1984)
Encompasses the entire range of the photographic medium, from the camera lucida to up-to- date computer technology, and from Europe and the Americas to the Far East. The text investigates all aspects of photography – aesthetic, documentary, commercial and technical – while placing it in historical context. It includes three technical sections with detailed information about equipment and processes. This edition also updates important new international work from the 1980 s and 1990 s.
