5.0 out of 5 stars The history of the captured image with appreciation for both the scientific and the artistic, November 27, 2013
This review is from: PHOTO: A HISTORY FROM BEHIND THE LENS (DVD)
This fascinating series takes the viewer on a journey from the beginnings of photography through the intricate modern digital age with emphasis on both the scholarly and the creative aspects of catching a moment and preserving it. In a relatively short period of time, photography has gone from an experimental novelty, the plaything of the wealthy, to a scientific data recording mechanism for a variety of fields of study. Even more intriguing is has also become a tool for creating amazing works of art, and is absolutely a part of everyone's daily life. The series PHOTO captures the drama and the art involved in photographs, exploring the "how" of the process and the intensity involved in recording moments. We learn about photographers and the thought that goes into the creation of a photograph that "speaks" to the viewer artistically and emotionally. Everything is the subject of photographs, depending on the intent of the photographer. The nude body is portrayed as well as Earth shattering events in our history, captured as the photographer saw them and wanted us to see them. A treat for those serious about photography, either as media persons or artists.
