20th Century Photography

Product Number: 440057
If you’re into art, photography, aesthetically pleasing designs, and simply the concept of being able to tell a story through an artistic gesture, then you’ll love the book 20th Century Photography!

Photography is a beautiful way to capture a moment in time. It has the ability to evoke feeling, emotion and tell a story that can touch your soul in so many different ways. The history of photography began nearly 200 years ago, but only relatively recently has it been fully recognized as a medium in its own right. Cologne’s Museum Ludwig was the first museum of contemporary art to devote a substantial section to international photography.

This book provides a fascinating insight into the L. Fritz Gruber collection’s rich diversity, from which this book is drawn. From conceptual art to abstraction to reportage, all of the major movements and genres are represented via a vast selection of the 20th century’s most remarkable photographs.
