The book, for those not familiar, breaks down our “understanding” of photographs into: The Thing Itself, The Detail, The Frame, Time and Vantage Point. Szarkowski uses a wealth of known and unknown images to illustrate each idea. Stephen Shore cites the lessons of The Photographer’s Eye in the shaping his own book and thus they make nice companions.
I don’t have much to say about this title beyond it should be required reading for the experienced and inexperienced. This reprint will provide access to another generation of photographers to one of his earliest and most important works.
