Edited by Hans Michael Koetzle.
Taschen, 2010. 500 pp., Illustrated throughout,
A comprehensive overview of the most influential photographers of the last century and their finest monographs: Arranged alphabetically, this biographical encyclopedia features every major photographer and photographic artist of the 20th century, from the earliest representatives of classical Modernism right up to the immediate present. Richly illustrated with facsimiles from books and magazines, this book includes all the major photographers of the last hundred years-especially those who have distinguished themselves with important publications or exhibitions, or who have made a significant contribution to the culture of the photographic image. While most of the 400-plus entries feature North American or European photographers, the scope is worldwide, with significant emphasis on the photography of Japan and Latin America, Africa and China. 'Photography in Print A-Z 'focuses on photographic images and culture, but also features photographers working in 'applied' areas, whose work goes beyond the merely illustrative, and is regarded as photographic art or is conserved by major museums, such as Julius Shulman, Terry Richardson, Cindy Sherman, and David LaChapelle, etc.
