American photography : a century of images ( visu )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 140 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
