From magazine pages to gallery walls, from advertisements to photo journalism, this book charts the history of color photography in the United States from the moment it became available as a mass medium to the moment when it no longer seemed an unusual choice for artists.
The marriage of art and technology that these images required is, itself, compelling: You cannot help staring at, say, a color photo of Parisian life in 1907, as much for its achievement as for its content. "New York Magazine" While the book includes plenty of magazine covers and lush product shots, it reveals that artists experimented with color from the beginning. "The Wall Street Journal" The stunning book looks at the history of color photography (with an emphasis on the role of magazines in its acceptance as an artistic medium), and includes work by photographers from Ansel Adams to Cindy Sherman.
