Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Brilliant reproductions of classic photographs in the Getty Museum comprise this collection. The chronological selection, along with well- researched commentary on both the individual photographers and the subjects photographed, add up to a working history of the topic-from Talbot through Atget, to Moholy-Nagy and Weegee. The volume will make a lovely-and useful-addition to both middle and upper school art curricula.
