Black and white photography : manifest visions : an international collection

This book presents an absolutely stunning collection of work hauntingly beautiful landscapes, intriguing still lifes, and tender portraits by 104 contemporary artists. Individually, the photographs are fresh, exquisite, and often startling. As a whole, the book stands as an impressive, often breathtaking portfolio of the finest of contemporary photography. A photographer and instructor at the International Center for Photography, Luciana wisely does not weigh down this book with unneeded commentary. He offers a short introduction in which he explains his quiet method of arranging the images, then allows the photographs to speak for themselves. The selection of images and grouping of artists is outstanding; as a result, turning the pages of the book is like strolling through an exhibition at one’s favorite art museum. It is difficult to imagine how one could produce a better, more original book about contemporary photographic art.

And of Course the most important figure in artistic photography is Ansel Adams.
