America changed profoundly in the 1960s and cameras were there to capture it all. From the civil rights movement, anti-war movement, Vietnam, and the space program-- photographers had unprecedented access to it all, and the media was willing to bring all the chaos of the era to the masses. With the advances in technology, photography became an increasingly powerful tool in criminology. Breakthrough digital technology promises both benefits and drawbacks for photography at the end of the 20th century. Though we live in a high-tech world, the enduring power of the still photograph remains

American photography : a century of images ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Although photography was invented in the first half of the 19th century, the beginning of the 20th century marked extraordinary changes. The Developing Image travels back to the very first time in history when inexpensive hand-held cameras gave ordinary people the opportunity to create their own visual images. Through archival footage and interviews with historians and notable photographers, the film explores the age when suddenly pictures were a part of our daily lives: on passports, postcards, in the developing picture press, and in science. World War I photographs even convinced many reluctant Americans that they had a stake in this distant war, and advertisers embraced photography because of its ability to create a fantasy that seemed to be a plausible reality. By the end of the 1920s, photographs--little flat pictures that came to represent the truth--had made their way into virtually every corner of contemporary life
American photography : a century of images ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
The 1930s brought to all Americans the explosion of mass media devoted to distributing photographic images. Magazines like Life and Look-dedicated to telling stories, primarily through photographs-were rapidly growing in popularity. An Associated Press "wire photo" could be sent anywhere instantaneously, and suddenly, millions of people were seeing the same pictures at the same time. Through archival footage and interviews with journalists, historians, and notable photographers, The Photographic Age depicts how documentary photographers brought the Depression into the living rooms of America, how Americans experienced World War II through the visual immediacy of the camera, and how the consumer frenzy of the 1950s was driven by our desire to possess the images of abundance
