recommend a book on the great photographers
I have been looking for a book that covers most of the great photographers ideally from Cartier-Bresson and Adams through to more modern great photographers. I've been quite surprised that I haven't been able to find one book that does this! I'm in the UK, and have been looking on Amazon and can't find quite what I'm looking for - examples of their work and a bit of info on the photographers. I'm probably missing something really obvious but can anyone recommend such a book?? Many thanks...

A personal favourite is Hans-Michael Koetzle's Photo Icons (Taschen)...

Sometimes you actually have to go to the bopokstore..

Compilation books are organized by time great photos of the 1930s,.

Or organizzed by topic great fashion photos.

Or by individual phbiotographers (real book) Photo Nomad, by David Douglas Duncan..

Or by nation great phtographers of Italy.

I've been in the book business and it certainly would be hard work to co0v ered a century, with photographers from every nation and every genre..

So, your best bet is to go to the store (or severalstores) and look for yourself..

Don't buy just one - go to your local library and you should find one or more books by each of them!.

In keeping with most replies on this forum I will not answer the question asked. Save your money and visit the Magnum site athttp://www.magnumphotos.comand just look at the myriad of photos there. It's a treat..

I don't know where you live in the Uk but in London there used to be a great photography book shop I Charing Cross road but sadly I think it has gone now, so that's not much help either is it. Lol..

My wife and I rarely buy photograhers book because they are expensive, take up space and collect dust once you've looked through them a few times. But do check out the magnum site, you can't get much better.Jules.

Why can't you blow bubbles with chewing gum?..
