The book prides itself on extensive information collected from other publications which in turn seek to illuminate the artists in question. Due to its comprehenisve photographic artists from places as broad as Europe and North America to Japan, China, Brazil and Africa, one can only consider this tell-all read to be the most valuable resource for anyone who wants to become expectedly acquainted with the influential photographers of the last one hundred years.
