List Price: $45.00

Question ID: 720422
Hi, I am interested in a list of 40+ acclaimed photography picture books. 
Topics of the photo books can vary widely: photos reflecting nature,
politics, pop-culture, cultural, significant events, etc (coffee table
books come to mind).  The price range of each of these books (new or
used) can not exceed $70.00 (so please do not list any very expensive
classics).

It is important that the books have been recognized within their field
as being exceptional (I leave up to you to determine "exceptional"...).

I will ultimately be purchasing these books.  Therefore, I need the
book title, publisher, and dates for the 40+ books.

Request for Question Clarification by alanna-ga on 20 Apr 2006 15:24 PDT
Do I surmise correctly that you want the books grouped by subject
rather than photographer?

Clarification of Question by rinkler-ga on 21 Apr 2006 21:20 PDT
Yes, sorted by sujbect would be great.

Thanks!

Hello Rinkler,

   I adore photo books, and selected books I would love to purchase if
I had your budget! Exceptional can be very subjective, so I have
selected books that are generally from recognized photographers,
publishing houses, organizations, reader reviews, and books that
appeal to me! All books are under $70 per book, and in many cases,
under $20! I hope this satisfies your need for these books!

What an interesting question!
Here are two of a social nature that may not be the direction you want:
"Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" by Jame Agee with photos by Walker Evans.
http://xroads.virginia.edu/~UG97/fsa/letus.html
http://history.hanover.edu/hhr/hhr93_6.html

which reminded me of Jacob Riis's "How the Other Half Lives":
http://www.authentichistory.com/images/postcivilwar/jacob_riis/contents.html

They both can be found on Amazon in current editions.

Mat(t)hew Brady, the Civil War photographer and portraitist comes to
mind, also "Weegee", Arthur Fellig, a news photographer 1935-1960:
http://www.amber-online.com/gallery/exhibition46/index.html

Don't know about specific books.

The source collection for photography is the agency "Magnum Photos":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnum_Photos
http://www.magnumphotos.com/c/Home_MAG.aspx
    Click on Books.

Here is another source about famous photographers:
http://www.masters-of-photography.com/S/steichen/steichen.html

Man Ray should also be considered:

I know, you want ISBNs, etc., but hope this is at least a start.
