Accompanying an exhibition opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1989, this book was the first broad historical study of European and American photography between the wars. Examining the works of such artists as Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy, Kertész, Rodchenko, Sander, Abbott and many others, the authors chart the era's urban, technological, and psychological revolutions. Maria Morris Hambourg, Associate Curator of Prints and Photographs at the Metropolitan, contributes an essay about the influence of modernism on American photography. Christopher Phillips writes on the intellectual climate in Europe as it affected photography during the same period.
