Since the J. Paul Getty Museum began collecting photographs in 1984, it has amassed one of the greatest photography collections in the world. Naef has here selected more than 200 masterpieces from this collection and written commentaries on each. Ranging from the 1830s to the 1960s, these photographs provide an informal history of the form and offer a rich sampling of the Getty's holdings. Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Stieglitz, Eugene Atget, Andre Kertesz, Walker Evans, and Diana Arbus are among the more than 100 masters whose works are reproduced in this beautiful volume.
