Each chapter of the two Photo Icons volumes focuses on a single
image which is described and analyzed in detail, in aesthetic, historical,
and artistic contexts.
Volume I begins with the very first permanent images (Nice'phore
Nie'pce's 1827 8-hour-exposure rooftop picture and Louis Daguerre's
famous 1839 street scene) and takes the reader up through the avant-garde
photography of the 1920s.
