4.0 out of 5 stars Just to be clear - it's a sourcebook... February 3, 2013
By rawdul
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As it says in the subtitle, it's a sourcebook and it only contains references. There is no actual information about photographers in the book, it is rather a list of books, catalogs, contact information of experts, etc. that contain/have information about photographers. If you are researching the history of photography and need to find a source of information on an African, Asian, Caribbean, European, Latin American, Near/Middle Eastern, North American, or Oceanian (those are the chapters) photographer, this is the book for you.
