"The Making of Great Photographs" is a collection of images by some of the most important photographers in history. Eamonn McCabe discusses the techniques and approaches employed by the masters in each image and, uniquely, how photographers can achieve similar effects using modern equipment. This collection features a wide range of styles from the fascinating and beautiful early images of Julia Margaret Cameron, to 20th-century masters such as Edward Weston and Paul Strand, and from the pioneers of the process itself such as William Henry Fox Talbot, to the celebrated post-war documentarist Tony Ray Jones. "The Making Of Great Photographs" is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of photography as well as practising photographers everywhere.
