And today's post is an example of why. The review and examination of the book 100 Ideas That Changed Photography not only provides a great, in-depth look inside this book, but in itself it also becomes a valuable bit of text for understanding the medium. So, for those of you who haven't already, put Brain Pickings in your reader. Now, on to the book. 100 Ideas That Changed Photography is the latest in a series about "great ideas" in various arts: Graphic Design, Film, Architecture, and so on. What a great place to start really exploring for a better understanding of the history of the medium. In terms of content, the book is illustrated with tremendous and iconic photographs, filled with historic images and quotes, and generally provides an exceptional in-depth look at photography's almost 200-year history. It's sure to be a hit with any fan of the history of photography, and even for new photographers who've never heard of film.
