Things as They Are

Photojournalism in Context Since 1955

By Mary Panzer
Afterword by Christian Caujolle

Paperback, 383pages, 30 23.2 3cm


Things as They Are tells the story of modern photojournalism, from The Family of Man and the heyday of Life magazine in 1955 to the era of the camera-phone in the present day. With 120 picture essays shown as they were first seen on the pages of newspapers and magazines, Things as They Are reveals how the events of the world, the art of photographers, and the interests of the press have converged on the printed page. It traces how photojournalism has developed over time alongside changing technology, media, fashions in photography - and a changing world.

Including landmark photo essays by photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Nan Goldin, Mary Ellen Mark, James Nachtwey, Sebasti o Salgado and W Eugene Smith, as shown on the pages of publications including Life, National Geographic, Paris Match, Stern and the Sunday Times, each is accompanied by an expert commentary. The book includes a timeline of the last 50 years illustrated by the iconic winners of the annual World Press Photo awards.
