American Photography: A Century of Images

This book is a companion to a series on PBS. It covers a wide variety of American photographers and images. Some of the more interesting sections detail the changes in aesthetic style and sensibility over the decades, and explore trends (like the Depression, when a government program sent photographers across the country to document conditions, producing many memorable images including Dorothea Lange's famous Migrant Mother) that have driven photography.
