The response to our last give-away was awesome. Everything was gone in 30 min. We hope those of you who received the book â€œ Digital Photography for Busy Womenâ€ are enjoying it.
Thanks again for your support.
This Saturday we will do another give-away of a great book on photography, â€œ Looking At Photographs” by John Szarkowski.
Remember: you MUST be on the email update list to qualify.
We will send a copy of this excellent book to the first 5 people who reply to the Saturday morning email update. The next 10 who reply will receive one of our official Photoinduced.com micro fiber lens cloths.
And keep checking into some of the galleries. We are adding new submissions all the time.
If you have ever walked in a gallery or visited a museumâ€™s photography exhibit and wondered what it was that made an image affect you like it did, here is a book that helps explain it, albeit in more intellectual terms. We feel that an image either affects you in the gut or not , but this collection of essays may make you look at photographs on another, deeper level. This is a book that deserves shelf space in your library.
Originally published in 1973, this 1999 reissue, with new duotone separations using the latest technology, brings this remarkable book back to a new generation.
“This is a picture book, and its first purpose is to provide the material for simple delectation,” says author John Szarkowski in his Introduction to the first survey of The Museum of Modern Art’s Photography Collection. A visually splendid album, Looking at Photographs is not only a treasury of “benchmark photographs,” but also an introduction to the aesthetics and the historical development of photography.
Among the photographers reproduced and discussed here are works by Hill and Adamson, Cameron, O’Sullivan, Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand, Weston, Walker Evans, Cartier-Bresson, Lange, Brassao, Ansel Adams, Minor White, and Robert Frank.
Some of these photographs are classics, familiar and well-loved favorites; but many are surprising, little-known works by the masters of the art, and a number are hitherto unpublished works by unknown photographers of the past.
