Photography at MoMA: 1840-1920
Illustrated with over 400 images, the book charts photography from early examples in the 1840s through its participation in international art movements such as Pictorialism and modernism.
An in-depth introduction is followed by eight chapters of full-colour plates, each introduced by a short essay. The book features masterworks by photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Henry Fox Talbot and Edward Steichen alongside lesser-known gems.
