The complete story of photography, scholarly, entertaining, comprehensive, concise. The authors are widely recognized as the world's leading authorities on the history of photography. This presents the evolution of photography from the earliest known discussions of the optical principles of the camera obscura - the direct predecessor of the photographic camera - to the discovery of photochemistry - from which the true history of photography may be dated - to the steady improvement of equipment, the development of artistic technique, and the invention of color photography. The Gernsheim photo historical collection was purchased by the University of Texas where it forms the basis of a comprehensive History of Photography.
