Описание

"War/Photography" surveys both iconic and newly discovered photographs of war and conflict, from daguerreotypes documenting the Crimean and American Civil Wars to digital images made by soldiers in 21st-century Iraq. Accompanying a landmark exhibition opening at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, it is generously illustrated with over 525 powerful images and includes texts by some of today`s most important scholars of war photography. This ambitious book offers a comprehensive investigation of the relationship between photography and armed conflict. The featured works represent a range of perspectives – from journalists to soldiers to ordinary citizens – and span six continents, yet together they communicate the consummate experience of war: its brutality, humanity, and even humour. The book`s essays investigate the immediate impact, dissemination, and historical influence of war photography.
