(laminated pictorial boards, no dust jacket; presumably as issued) [moderate wear to extremities, both top and bottom of spine are slightly chipped and have been tape-reinforced, small stain on top edge, one-time owner's name and date of purchase on front pastedown (B&W and color photographs, ads) Wonderful compilation of articles and essays on the then-current state of in-the-field photography. The contributors include such luminaries as Ansel Adams ("The Expanding Photographic Universe"), Alfred Eisenstadt ("Eyes That See," an interview) and Lewis Jacobs ("Surrealism for the Photographer"). And it's hard to think of any prominent photographer of the era whose work isn't represented: Margaret Bourke-White, Eliot Elisofon, Peter Stackpole, Russell Lee, Dorothea Lange, Berenice Abbott, Moholy-Nagy, Carl Van Vechten, Martin Munkacsi, etc. etc. and etc. (OK, I guess I don't see Walker Evans -- but you get the picture, no pun intended.) Life Magazine and its staff are acknowledged, as are the Museum of Modern Art, the WPA, the Farm Security Administration, etc. Quite a decent copy of a book that doesn't wear well.
