Synopsis: Introduce your patrons to a new vision of the world with this survey of today's best and most prominent photographers

Discover the lives and works of a diverse group of 850 international photographers in this unrivaled ALA/RASD Outstanding Reference Source. Contemporary Photographers presents informative sketches of world-renowned photographers of our era who have greatly influenced the medium. Exhaustive in its coverage, this new 3rd edition includes 100 new entrants and provides unique analysis of photographers working in all areas of the world today.

The lives and works of photographers in a concise and informative format Contemporary Photographers contains both detailed biographical and incisive critical information about each entrant. Coupling this with an inside look at a broad range of photographic styles, this edition suits the needs of both casual browsers and serious students of the fine art of photography. Arranged alphabetically, each entry provides:

  • A detailed biography that profiles the photographer's background, career, and education, and supplies current contact information
  • Lists of individual exhibitions
  • A listing of galleries and museums that have the entrant's work in their collection
  • A selected bibliography of works by and about the photographer
  • An incisive critical essay signed by one of the book's 175 contributors
A privileged look through the eyes of the beholder

Whenever possible, each entry is enhanced by a statement by the photographer on his or her work or on contemporary photography in general, together with a representative photograph chosen by the artist. Consider how much more interesting and accessible the works of Iranian photographer Abbas are, for example, when they are coupled with the artist's own words: "People expect us, photojournalists, to change the world with our pictures. All we can do is to show that this world had to be changed ... sometimes." As far as the eye can see: Expanded coverage of international photographers

Traditional surveys often overlook entire categories of photographers, ignoring many important non-Western, third-world, and women photographers. Compiled under the direction of a host of new advisors, this edition of Contemporary Photographers includes artists working in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and also extends coverage of African, Indian, Far Eastern, and Latin American photographers---comprising a breadth of coverage it would take volumes to match.

With a selection of 850 international photographers --100 of whom are new to this edition -- Contemporary Photographers covers the familiar masters as well as those photographers whose fame has not always kept pace with their artistry. Look for extensive coverage of these gifted and celebrated photographers:

  • Ansel Adams
  • Oladele Bamgboye
  • Vladimir Birgus
  • Henri Cartier-Bresson
  • Chang Chao-Tang
  • Sarah Charlesworth
  • Lynne Cohen
  • John Davies
  • Dawid
  • Bernard Descamps
  • Zbigniew Dlubak
  • Alfred Eisenstaedt
  • Paz Errazuriz
  • Barbara Ess

  • And many more
