An Essential Photography Library

In his essay, "Is Photography a Failure," reproduced in Aperture's Stieglitz on Photography, Stiegllitz writes, "This machine can negate ninety-nine percent of what was called and still is called painting. Through it a man who knows how to really photograph is able to channel the impulses of human beings and to register the objective world directly, through the science of optics and the chemistry of silver and platinum, translated into tonalities subtle beyond the reach of any human hand." Photography has changed a great deal since 1922, when the essay was originally published in The Sun. Our Essential Photography Library collects landmark publications that tell the history of the medium.
