This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

This visually arresting book takes the reader on a journey across the globe by presenting the most candid, immediate, and provocative images captured by the biggest names in street photography from its inception to today. Capturing daily life in every corner of the world, this sumptuous collection of great street photography shows the very best of the genre. From pre-war gelatin silver prints to 21st-century digital images, from documentary to abstract, from New York's Central Park to a mountain city in Mongolia, these photographs reveal the many ways street photography moves, informs, and excites us. The book includes work by the likes of Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Joel Meyerowitz, Gordon Parks, Andre Kertesz, Garry Winogrand, Roger Mayne, and other masters of street photography who pushed the genre's boundaries and continue to innovate today. Each exquisitely reproduced photograph is presented on a double-page spread and accompanied by an informative text. David Gibson's insightful introduction traces the history of street photography, reflects on its broad appeal, and looks toward the future of the genre. AUTHOR: David Gibson is one of the founding members of IN-PUBLiC, a well-known street photography collective. His previous books include 100 Great Street Photographs (Prestel) and The Street Photographer's Manual. SELLING POINTS: An accessible and visually rich survey of 100 of the most significant street photographs, ranging from iconic photographs from throughout the history of photography up to the present day, curated by a well-respected voice. Street photography is getting more popular due to the prevalence of cameras in mobile phones. All the photographs in this book are given two-page spreads with minimal text which allow the photographs to speak for themselves. The photography in this book is carefully curated to showcase the best street photographers of all time and includes works by Diane Arbus, Henri Cartier Bresson, Danny Lyon, and Lee Friedlander, among many others. This book is a follow-up to the successful 100 Great Street Photographs (ISBN 9783791383132). 100 colour illustrations
