Abstract (English)

"For more than a century, certain extraordinary men and women have worked in photography with the unmistakable authority of genius. [...] Each is like an eye which, once opened on the universe, cannot be closed again. It is through such eyes, looking not only outward but inward, that we here present photography as a medium. In the main body of this book, some seventeen of these masters are presented together." -- p. 7.
