    1. Not enough photos for me but it was good as an introduction to what is considered great photography e.g one thing I took from it is that there are way photographs of people than anything else I supplemented it with google imaging for photos from the photographers featured but I hope to find some books with photos Basic format for each of the 50 photographers featured a life timeline, a thumb size picture of the photographer, a written description on one page, 1 3 photos from the photographer [...]


    2. On nearly every front, I wanted The book is smaller than a high school text book and about 1 4 as thick with only 170 pages including the index just the contents alphabetized Most of the photographers only get two pages, some get four They all get about 3 4 of page of text describing their lives, which is fine for me, but many only get 1 or 2 photos That s not enough to get a feel for anyone s body of work The book is an abridged selection of encyclopedia entries.And speaking of abridged, I wan [...]


    3. It was okay Personally, I would have liked if there had been photos per photographer It s impossible to get an idea of the photographer s style if there s only 2 3 pictures or in some case only 1 picture per photographer but I think it s nice as a reference book I got to know photographers I had never heard about and I found many interesting photographers that I will google to see of their work So I did learn quite a lot by reading this book which is always nice.


    4. I greatly enjoy seeing the works of good photographers and have decided to check out books of good photographs on a regular basis But which books Enter this handy guide to expose hah me to many interesting photographers I especially loved the timeline feature.


    5. This was kinda weird to read I get that it s hard to say enough when trying to go over this many people in this little space, and I get that making the book larger would have risked the visual and physical safety of brevity, and I get that using thinner paper stock would have risked the visual quality of the photographs, but it seems like the only person trying to make the contents work with these limitations was Rainald Schwartz with the layout which is gorgeous The overviews of the photographe [...]

    8. Interesting selection, with some great photographers included Atget, Brassai, Capa, Mapplethorpe, Newton, Salgado to name a few Still I am surprised that Ansel Adams and his Moon and Half Dome are not included


    9. Le visuel et le contenu sont faibles Seulement deux ou trois photos sont pr sent es par photographe et leur travail est r sum en seulement une page Donne une bonne vue g n ral des grands photographes, mais en restant en surface uniquement.


    10. Not necessarily a dynamic introduction as stated by the publisher, but a quick introduction, a first step for those who want to know .



    11. Nice book with beautiful design It s a pleasure to own one.As for me it had quite strange choice of photos for many famous authors, but it was still interesting to discover.


    12. An understanding on the pioneers of various photographic techniques This short book gives a few works of the 50 photographers it contains, and a bit of their background.
