Door het oog van de Lens

Reading right now “Door het oog van de Lens – Hoe fotografie ons leven heeft veranderd” by Gerry Badger, a New Years gift from my sister (thanks ;-)). Quite interesting book about the evolution of photography in its social context, based on a detailed description and thoughts on roughly 20 iconic images (from Daguerre’s : “View on Boulevard du Temple, Paris”, over Dorothea Lange : “Migrant Mother” to Ansel Adams : “Clearing Winter Storm” and more recent images like “Times Square” from Andreas Gursky (an image that we saw a while ago at a fantastic exhibition in Sharjah’s museum)). Completely in my element, yummy!
