In the history of photography, the lives of the creative personalities behind the lens are often as captivating as the images they produced, yet the stories of the photographers are all too often overlooked. Paired with succinct biographies of 38 pioneers in the field, this book presents 101 outstanding photos, representing their finest work. Many of them are rarely seen portraits and self-portraits by such artists as Margaret Bourke-White, Brassaï, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier- Bresson, Diane Arbus, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Eadweard Muybridge, Julia Margaret Cameron, André Kertesz, Claude Cahun, Robert Mapplethorpe, Man Ray, and Edward Steichen.
