Remember those piles of pieces of paper bound together in a convenient and easy to follow form? They still make them you know…!
Here are a few of my favourites that I personally think anyone serious about expanding their knowledge of photography should have on their bookshelves, or if that way inclined on a device.
The Photograph: A Visual and Cultural History – Graham Clarke
Ways of Seeing – John Berger
The Photography Book – Ian Jeffrey
On Photography – Susan Sontag
100 Photographs That Changed the World – Robert Sullivan
The History of Photography: From 1839 to the Present – Beaumont Newhall
…and not forgetting the legendary tomes anyone who has formally studied photography will almost certainly have encountered!
Langford’s Basic Photography: The Guide for Serious Photographers – Michael Langford
Langford’s Advanced Photography – Michael Langford
