Why are some photographs so much more effective and powerful than others? When Photography Really Works showcases eighty outstanding photographs— from pioneering black and white prints to today’s digital masterpieces—by photographers as diverse as Alfred Stieglitz, Ernst Haas, Diane Arbus, Rineke Dijkstra and Martin Parr.
Val Williams highlights the elements of each photograph that distinguish it from its peers, such as composition, colour, texture and fidelity to subject, explaining just what it is that makes it so great. Her insightful text will open your eyes to the defining qualities of the key photographs of every period and genre, from portraiture to landscape, and from photojournalism to social documentary.
