The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Photography encompasses the history, art and science of photography. At a time when information is instantly accessible on the internet, but is often of doubtful reliability or provenance, this ambitious project reasserts the veracity, reliability and accuracy of scholarly research in reference publishing.
Compiled under the editorial guidance of Nathalie Herschdorfer and in consultation with an international panel of 150 experts, The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Photography is based on fresh scholarship by seventy-nine researchers from sixteen countries. It features over 300 iconic photographs and contains more than 1,200 concise yet fully detailed entries on all aspects of the subject. The culmination of nearly ten years of development and research, this is the truly definitive reference to photography.
