This volume, based on the 1989 Photography Symposium held at the J. Paul Getty Museum of Art, discusses the pioneers of the first decade of photography (many of them instrumental in the development of modernism in art). The contributors, including Andre James, Eugenia Janis, Nancy Keeler, John Szarkowski, Richard Benson, Larry Schaar, Beaumont Newhall, and Graham Smith also discuss early collectors of photography and early patenting processes.
