Photography Visionaries is an inspiring guide to 75 of the most influential photographers from c.1900 to the present. Entertainingly written by an expert on photography, it provides a fascinating insight into the lives and careers of men and women working in a medium which perhaps more than any other in the visual arts has been deeply affected by technological change.

The entries are arranged chronologically, instilling in the reader an understanding of what marks each photographer as a visionary. Each entry is less about providing a full biography of the person and more about creating a sense of excitement regarding their work and the lasting impact that it has had on photography.

With the aid of an arresting selection of photographs, some well-known and others less so, this book offers a unique and engaging perspective on the development of photography through some of its most inventive practitioners.

About the Author:

Mary Warner Marien is Professor Emerita in the Department of Fine Arts at Syracuse University, New York. She continues to lecture in the United States and Europe and in 2008 won an Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writer award. She is the author of Photography: A Cultural History as well as numerous articles on photography.

Review:

"Photography Visionaries could well be the one-stop work on great photographers which we have needed for so long. Whether you are a newcomer to photography or an old hand, you cannot fail to be impressed by the breadth and accessibility of coverage on offer here." -Royal Photography Society Journal

"Author Mary Warner Marien ... elegantly balances the larger historical context each photographer worked in with more intimate insights.... Marien sought to focus the book on those who took risks, weren't afraid to make mistakes, and ultimately changed the medium forever-be it artistically, technically, politically or otherwise."-Cool Hunting

"Photography Visionaries is a beautiful anthology of some of the world's most influential photographers." -Irish Tatler Man
