How to look at a photo and how to learn from looking at it


In The Photographers Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographers Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michaels own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography.

Now, in The Photographers Vision, he examines the work of photographys greats, explaining how to look at a photo and how to learn from looking at it. The featured work includes some of the most distinguished names in photographys history: Nick Knight, Frederick Henry Evans, Frans Lanting, Tim Page, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Paul Outerbridge, Walker Evans, Cindy Sherman, Elliott Erwitt, Trent Parke, Jeff Wall, Paul Strand, Romano Cagnoni, Horst Faas, James Casebere and many more, making this book visually stunning as well as intellectually authoritative.
