"This book is an investigation of what photographs look like, and of why they look that way. It is concerned with photographic style and with photographic tradition: with the sense of possibilities that a photographer today takes to his work....The Photographer's Eye' brings together photographs from the much publicized exhibition that offered an outline of the creative photographer's visual language and was hailed as a landmark in the history of photography."--from the dust jacket.
