PHOTOGRAPHY IS A LANGUAGE

Limited to the field of magazine photography, this is concerned with photo journalism, and in simple prose and very effective illustration by leading names in the profession, describes the development and operation of this speciality. The evolution of photographic processes, styles, and the picture magazines; the various levels of photographic techniques; the picture story (choice of an idea, assignment of a photographer, research, captioning and editing of pictures); picture careers -- from the darkroom up; and twenty interviews with leading exponents of the art, including Karsh, Eisenstedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Gehr, etc., etc. Nice piece of bookmaking in addition- this is for the would-be magazine photographer or picture editor, but not for anyone far advanced in the profession.
