20th Century Photographers


20th Century Photographers

Interviews on the Craft, Purpose, and the Passion of Photography

By Grace Schaub

Edited by George Schaub

Focal Press – 2015 – 282 pages

This book is a compilation of interviews and

essays that cover a broad range of photographers and photographic

disciplines. Each photographer profiled made a living by concentrating

on a specific aspect of the craft, but in doing so transcended their

livelihood to become recognized for more than the type of images they

created. Each had a distinct “style,” creative approach, dedication to

the craft, point of view about themselves and the world.

These interviews were conducted during a seminal period in the shift

from film to digital and from print reproduction to global distribution

on the Internet. Just like their photographs continue to inspire today,

now these pros’ words can live on as an invaluable reference for the

photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection

transcend time and technology.
