The Genius of Photography book. Over and over, our author Gerry Badger presents such tired old cliches as if they were gems of insight, as if they were actually worth writing down in the first place. I think writing about photography must damage the brain, I don't know why.

Accompanying the first major television history of this ever more influential artform, this landmark book explores the key events and the key images that have marked the development of photography. At the heart of the book is a quest to understand what makes a truly great photograph. What is it that makes a photograph by Nan Goldin or Henri Cartier Bresson stand out among the millions of others taken by all of us every single day? "The Genius of Photography" examines the evolution of photography in its wider context: social, political, economic, technological and artistic. It brings a critical perspective and a strong aesthetic sense to the subject, but above all it is primarily a narrative history. It begins with the earliest days of the photograph in the 1840s and ends with an examination of the state of photography today and the effect that the 'digital revolution' will have, changing not only how we look at a photograph but what it is in a physical sense.This book examines all the different genres of photography from landscape and portraiture to news and reportage. It also tells the great stories behind many of the world's most iconic photographs and reveals the extraordinary characters - from Louis Daguerre and Cindy Sherman, Paul Strand and Robert Capa - who have made and defined this art form. Provocative and enlightening by turns, this is a major book for anyone who wants to know more about one of the most important art forms of the 21st century.

Having only seen short youtube clips of the original british tv show on which this book is based, i wish a DVD of the show was available in the USA. The book sands alone, but the book has an interesting point of view that the dvd brings to life.
