Description
Anyone can take a picture, and these days many of us make and use photographs every day. In this gorgeously produced large-format album, the former creative director of leading photo agency Getty Images considers our impulse to take photos in the first place, showcasing the work of 50 contemporary photographers along with their statements on the purpose and technique of photography. Chuck Close notes how easy it is to create an accidental masterpiece with photography, and how difficult it is to achieve a signature style. Elliott Erwitt, who offers one of his favorite dog's-eye view images, describes how he sneaks around a bit in his pursuit of the spontaneous moment. And Ralph Gibson photographs his own perception of the world, with images of bikers in Los Angeles, a pedestrian in Italy, and a nude woman both illuminated and hidden by a Chinese table lamp.
