FACE TIME A HISTORY OF THE PHOTOPGRAPHIC PORTRAIT

         

תקציר

From the daguerreotype to the digital age, Face Time is an accessible introduction to one of photography's most popular subjects: ourselves.

With over 250 illustrations, it presents rarely seen treasures alongside works by the greatest names in photography, including nineteenth-century pioneers Hippolyte Bayard and Julia Margaret Cameron, twentieth-century masters Edward Weston, Lee Miller and Richard Avedon, and contemporary groundbreakers Newsha Tavakolian, Rineke Dijkstra and Zanele Muholi. It also immortalizes some of photography's most iconic subjects, such as Queen Elizabeth II, Barack Obama, Marilyn Monroe, Frida Kahlo and many others.

Transcending time and space, the book adopts a fresh, thematic approach to the history of photographic portraiture in eight chapters, tracing a wide range of applications and influences across the spheres of art, advertising, anthropology, fashion, narrative, documentary and vernacular photography. Informative and insightful introductions to each theme are followed by unexpected and thought-provoking curations of photographs, as well as detailed commentaries on key images.

The result is an ambitiously curated and visually entertaining introduction to the history and themes of photographic portraiture, and an inspiring journey through the ever-elusive question of human identity.
