Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Look through this wonderful selection of Andreas Feininger's photos and you'll realise why he is considered one of the photography greats. All the compositions seem so right, from New York to a canyon in Wyoming, the same attention to light and shade, framing and focal point shapes. Several of photos are so well known that they are readily available as posters and frequently appear in history of photography books.

The seventy-six duotones (all beautifully printed) are exterior photos and capture America from the Forties to the Sixties, twenty-one are nature oriented and the remainder show cities, suburbs and industry. Included is the famous 1942 midtown Manhattan shot taken with a tele-photo lens from twenty-five miles away and the use of this lens became his speciality.

I like his photos because, nicely, many of them show everyday America, like the two taken in 1947, Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona (page 51) and Atlantic City beach (pages 31-31). The book presents the best American work of this great photojournalist.
