Berenice Abbott
  • Paperback with flaps
Berenice Abbott earned a place as one of the greatest American photographers. Working in Paris, she photographed its literary and artistic leading lights, including James Joyce, but her name was made by her major project, Changing New York, which documented the interaction between the city's dramatic architecture and its people.

  • Paperback with flaps
Subjects range from poetic scenes of old Tokyo to modern Japanese sub-culture, from sensual close-ups of exotic flowers to erotic photographs of kimono-clad women bound in rope. This compact book surveys and reflects Araki’s extraordinary breadth of work, from the shocking to the sublime.

Peter Beard
  • Paperback with flaps
Peter Beard was twenty-four years old when he moved to Kenya, where he built up an exceptional body of work. His images of wild animals such as crocodiles and elephants, and of the land in all its purity and its wildness, are a huge collage of his experiences. Together with his photographic journals, they show that Peter Beard is unique among contemporary photographers.

  • Paperback with flaps
No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassaï (1899–1984) with Paris). His most famous portraits and cityscapes, collected in this pocket-size book, form a unique vision of life in pre- and post-war Europe

Lewis Carroll
  • Paperback with flaps
His fascination with this pioneering new medium led him to take intensely atmospheric portraits of family members and friends, and to create a series of haunting, unforgettable – and, to modern eyes, controversial – images

Elliott Erwitt PhotoFile sm
  • Paperback with flaps
Elliott Erwitt is one of the most remarkable photographers in America today. Sudden coincidences and chance encounters with objects and situations allow him to capture glimpses of the ridiculous or the comical side of everyday events, and his visual jokes become striking and pithy observations about life. Compassionate, humorous, sinister, playful, bitter, bawdy, lyrical – this collection confirms Erwitt’s limitless ability to capture a range of moods and nuances of expression.

Walker Evans
  • Paperback with flaps
A  must-have volume – Amateur Photographer

Found Photography

Bruce Gilden
  • Paperback with flaps
Bruce Gilden is probably best known for his photographic work on the streets of New York, focusing on the city’s characters and outsiders.

William Klein
  • Paperback with flaps
The latest addition to Thames & Hudson’s acclaimed ‘Photofile’ series surveys William Klein, best known for 'The Americans' and 'New York'

Jacques Henri Lartigue
  • Paperback with flaps
Lartigue (1894-1986) was given his first camera in 1902 and soon began to fill album after album with photographs of family and friends. The photographs collected here – of car and bicycle races, early aeroplanes, enormous kites – radiate the intimacy, humour and exuberance he brought to his art.

Magnum Photos
  • Paperback with flaps
Magnum owes its reputation to the talent of its members, who have never swerved from the principles of its founders: solidarity and respect for individuality. What unites all of these photographers, however, is their understanding of journalism and the warmly human gaze that they cast upon the world.

Con McCullin Photofile sm
  • Paperback with flaps
Don McCullin is one of the greatest photographers of conflict in our time. His career has encompassed the last fifty years – a relentlessly photographed era steeped in conflict.

Duane Michals
  • Paperback with flaps
Duane Michals has become best known for his compelling narrative sequences, including The Voyage of the Spirit After Death, Paradise Regained and The Fallen Angel. His oeuvre reflects a haunting obsession with life and death, fantasy and reality – thematic opposites expressed through his technical use of double exposures, superimposed images, props, mirrors and the ambiguous notations that often appear on the margins of the photographs.
