The second volume in an indispensable history of American photojournalism, but readable and engrossing on its own June 11 2014
By Peter B. Hales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Carlebach's first volume, The Origins of Photojournalism in America, looked at what might be called proto-photojournalism, for it began with the cumbersome and non-reproduceable daguerreotype and ended while shutter speeds were still typically more than a second, making action shooting still impossible. This volume takes up where the other left off, and it takes us through the golden ages of American photo-journalism, when the Speed Graphic and the big flashbulb ripped the lives of saints, sinners and celebrities, and the results graced the front pages of the dailies and all the pages of the glossy photo-mags that were essential adornments of every middle-class American coffee table, every doctor's and dentist's waiting room, every public library in America. Engagingly written, this book not only rounds out the set, but does so in a manner that makes it a must-read for anyone interested in the histories of news, of photography, and of America.

I really love this book, and as seeing the chapter, to chapter of the history of photojournalism, and I highly recommended in getting this book before making the decision in getting your first Leica, or Nikon Film, Hey I even I my 4x5 Graflex, at which this book shows that chapters in when using the classic camera as well when switching to 35mm during the 1940's. This book is in my library. and well happily to share it with others, but I again I highly recommended in getting it.

Thank You
Alex Carrillo
