Quite a remarkable book to own and admire from time to time. ( )

Szarkowski discusses the various photography equipment, film developing processes, image framing, photo altering techniques and occasionally, subject selection that were used by the photographers of 100 pictures from the MOMA Collection.
I borrowed this from the library mainly to look at the photographs in the book. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the text in the book much more than I enjoyed looking at the photographs. Recommended for photography fans. ( )

This is a basic text for anyone serious about photography. A brilliant writer, Szarkowski can be argued with, found lacking, but not ignored. One Hundred images from MOMA's collection are well selected and presented, one page each for reproduction opposite a one page essay response.
