schema:reviewBody""The photographic portrait has two parallel histories that run side by side, from the birth of photography to the twenty-first century; one of portraits made in the studio, the other of those taken in the street. The advent of small, easily concealed cameos allowed photographers to capture subjects in the street unaware. In contrast, the studio offered the opportunity to present carefully composed images to the world, making use of the elaborate staging and technical devices at the photographer's disposal." "With celebrities today expected to pose for the paparazzi in the street, and the studio being used increasingly for informal and intimate shots, these traditions have been subverted. Accompanying a major exhibition at Tate Modern, Street & Studio explores the fascinating contrasts, tensions and connections between these two traditions."--BOOK JACKET."
