The joy of the volume is its democratic treatment of the multiple genres it contains. A clear demonstration that the mediums is an all encompassing art form. Indispensable."―Amateur Photographer "This bumper book collates some of the most striking images in the history of photography. Alongside the works of renowned names such as Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino and David Hockney, the book showcases superb images captured by lesser known photographers.
