"An unprecedented study that is the first history of this tradition ever published, 'Bystander' explores street photography through a discussion of the medium's masters - Atget, Stieglitz, Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Kertesz, Evans, Levitt, Frank, Arbus, Winogrand, and many others - and reveals along the way much about the craft and creative process of photography. Profusely illustrated with the work of more than eighty photographers, the book is composed of four parts separated by lively folios of pictures. Each part discusses a different era - from the early days of the medium in the nineteenth-century Europe, to America in the late twentieth century - and devotes entire chapters to key figures of that period." The volume is in near excellent condition, and is solidly bound with clean, bright pages. Intact dustjacket is in mylar cover. The book measures approximately 9 1/2" x 11 1/4" and contains 430 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50.
