schema:description""Since 1930, when the Museum [of Modern Art] accessioned its first photograph, a vast and unique archive of pictures has been assembled for study, preservation, and exhibition. Among the masters represented here are Hill and Adamson, Cameron, O'Sullivan, Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand, Weston, Walker Evans, Cartier-Bresson, Lange, Brassaï, Ansel Adams, Minor White, and Robert Frank. Some of these photographs are classics, familiar and well-loved favorites; but many are surprising, little-known works by the masters of the art, and a number are hitherto unpublished works by unknown photographers of the past. ...originally published in 1973, this reissue, with new duotone separations using the latest technology, brings this remarkable book back to a new generation."--Back cover."
