Street & Studio: An Urban History of Photography

Street & Studio: An Urban History of Photography
Library Shelf Location 27.ESKI
Publication Date 2008
Description The photographic portrait has two parallel histories that run side by side from the birth of photography to the twenty-first century; one of portraits made in the studio, the other of those taken in the street. The advent of small, easily concealed cameras allowed photographers to capture subjects in the street unaware. In contrast, the studio offered the opportunity to present carefully composed images to the world, making use of all the elaborate staging and technical devices at the photographer's disposal.
