Subjective Objective: A Century of Social Photography (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Socio - documentary photography is one of the most emotional of all photographic genres. The clear pictorial language shows the passion of the photographer to bring about political and social change. This volume assembles iconic works by photographers from the early 20th century to contemporary artists in large - format reproductions. Socio - documentary photography established itself in the 20th century and focuses on the lives of socially disadvantaged people. Pioneers like Berenice Abbott, Max Alpert, Walker Evans, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Gordon Parks, Alexander Rodchenko, Sebastiao Salgado and Weegee - to name but a few of the photographers featured in the book - used their powerful photos on behalf of those people whom society largely ignores. The volume demonstrates impressively how the genre developed, how it spread in the United States, the Soviet Union and in other political systems, and the influence of today's social media.
