Resumen del Libro
From its inception, photography has been both a medium of documentation and of artistic creation. However, it did not acquire its standing as a large-scale reproducible and publishable art until the interwar period of this century, when the work of artists and publishers contributed to the creation of an international style. Photography, photomontage, and the photogram were techniques that established a new world of visual communication, a new world of modernity. Fotografia Publica: Photography in Print chronicles photographic works as they appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, posters, and other printed media, whether for recording events, artistic experimentation, or propaganda. The artists included form an international whos who of the 20s and 30s from the Russian Constructivists to the photographers of the American W.P.A. and F.S.A. Beautifully organized and designed, this book presents artist biographies, histories of the publications in which their creations were first published, and adetailed and informative essay by the Horacio Fernandez, curator at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.
