Editorial Reviews

Review

“Graham Smith’s Photography and Travel is an erudite and informed examination of the influence of photography on the concept of ‘travel,’ and reversely, of the wider world on photography as a means to record and introduce locations previously inaccessible to the majority.”
(Slate)

 “It’s nice to have all the pictures and Smith’s book tells the extraordinary tale of the relationship between travel and the photographic arts from 1830s to the present day. He covers an impressive amount of ground: photographs stealing the show at the great exhibitions of the 19th century, the rise of the picture postcard, the emergence of image-packed magazines, and how photos did as many favours for the Venetian economy as the famous glassware. There’s also a detailed account of how the technology evolved. Fittingly, the book contains many well-chosen illustrations—a reminder that putting camera in the hands of travellers was a good idea.”
(Geographical Magazine)

Reading the book made me feel like I was touring the world, past and present, with my camera. It is beautifully illustrated with 115 photographs and drawings.
