Victor Hasselblad is the founder of Hasselblad, a Swedish photographic company specializing in the production of medium format cameras, image scanners as well as other photographic material. The cameras become famous during the Apollo mission, where the first ever humans landed on the moon. The company was previously established in 1841, by Victor’s great-grand father as a series of shops and photo labs. He opened his own photo lab company in Sweden in 1937 and in 1941 became well established, after he was asked to develop an aerial camera for the Swedish military during World War II. At this time, his company had more than 20 employees.

A highly unusual and original book of photographs from award-winning photographer Benge. Whilst looking through his contact sheets, Benge noticed one picture that reminded him of work by Friedlander, and another by someone else. Usually this would be cause for rejection. But Benge did the opposite - seeking out his own, original images that were accidentally in the style of others to form an 'anthology' of contemporary photography 'featuring' some of its biggest names. The resulting work is both a serious and light-hearted exploration of photographic style.

The object of this little work is to fill a void much complained of by Daguerreotypists--particularly young beginners. The author has waited a long time in hopes that some more able pen would be devoted to the subject, but the wants of the numerous, and constantly increasing, class, just mentioned, induces him to wait no longer. All the English works on the subject--particularly on the practical application, of Photogenic drawing--are deficient in many minute details, which are essential to a complete understanding of the art. Many of their methods of operating are entirely different from, and much inferior to, those practised in the United States: their apparatus, also, cannot compare with ours for completeness, utility or simplicity. I shall, therefore, confine myself principally--so far as Photogenic drawing upon metalic plates is concerned--to the methods practised by the most celebrated and experienced operators, drawing upon French and English authority only in cases where I find it essential to the purpose for which I design my work, namely: furnishing a complete system of Photography; such an one as will enable any gentleman, or lady, who may wish to practise the art, for profit or amusement, to do so without the trouble and expense of seeking instruction from professors, which in many cases within my own knowledge has prevented persons from embracing the profession.

Defining photography is impossible. Revealing it is another matter, and that's what The Concise Focal Encyclopedia of Photography does, with each turn of the page. History: The technical origins and evolution of photography are half of the story. The other half consists of the ways that cultural forces have transformed photography into a constellation of practices more diverse than any other mode of representation. Photographers can tell a more in-depth story through a photo like Dorothea Lange's "Migrant Mother than a journalist ever could with the written word alone. Major themes and practitioners: Over 25 entries, many with supporting illustrations, examine the figures, trends, and ideas that have contributed most heavily to the history and current state of photography. Contemporary issues: The issues influencing photography today are more complex than at any other time in its history. Questions of ethics, desire, perception, digitization, and commercialization all vie for attention. Hear what the experts have to say about crucial issues such as whether or not the images we take today will last the test of time, and if so, how? When material is covered this skillfully, "concise is no compromise. The Concise Focal Encyclopedia of Photography is packed with useful information, compelling ideas, and - best of all - pure pleasure.
