Description

Behind every great photograph is a story. For every noteworthy image there are many more images taken before and after "the moment" that are often left unseen to anyone but the photographer himself.

Featuring an array of original contact sheets from more than forty international photographers--including photographers new to the popular edition--"The Contact Sheet" allows in-depth insight into the subject matter and the photographic process, often revealing a deeper story that has not been told. From William Claxton to William Wegman, the photographers in this collection range from well-known names to up-and-coming artists, making this an indispensable addition to the library of any serious lover of photography.

More than forty international photographers represented, including: William Claxton, Chuck Close, Michel Comte, Anton Corbijn, Imogen Cunningham, David Doubilet, Elliot Erwitt, Nan Goldin, Nadav Kander, Art Kane, David Hume Kennerly, Dorothea Lange, Saul Leiter, Peter Lindbergh, Jerry McMillan, Joel Meyerowitz, Richard Misrach, Arnold Newman, Paul Outerbridge, Martin Parr, Ed Ruscha, Julius Shulman, Jeanloup Sieff, Jerry Uelsmann and William Wegman.
