    More Views
    The newest addition to Prestel's highly successful "50… You Should Know" series offers the perfect introduction to the best contemporary photographers and their most iconic works.

    This globetrotting collection of contemporary photographers and their work is a great way to become familiar with the wide variety of techniques and styles embraced by the medium. Organized chronologically by year of birth, each photographer is introduced in double-page spreads that feature reproductions of their work and a perceptive and concise appreciation of their life and career. From Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama, famous for his images of post-war Japan, to Richard Mosse, an Irish conceptual documentarian who uses infrared film to document war in the Eastern Congo from a bold new perspective, this book offers an exciting array of familiar and not-so-familiar works. Among the photographers included are Nan Goldin, William Eggleston, Sebastia Salgado, Sally Mann, Nobuyoshi Araki, Dayanita Singh, Juergen Teller, and Alec Soth. By reaching across the globe and including artists whose work is experimental, groundbreaking, thought-provoking, or beautiful, this book presents a panoply of today's most remarkable photographers.

    Florian Heine is the author of several books about art and photography, including Photography: The Groundbreaking Moments (Prestel).

    Brad Finger is an art historian whose numerous books include '50 Contemporary Artists You Should Know', '50 Photos You Should Know', and 'Modern Art: The Groundbreaking Moments' (all by Prestel).
