Die fotografierte Ferne. Fotografen auf Reisen (1880–2015)
Faraway Focus. Photographers go travelling (1880–2015)
Spanning more than a century, this generously illustrated book explores the world of travel photography.
Travel has been a major theme in photography for over 100 years. In the late 19th century, an age of colonial expansion and nascent tourism, photographers roamed the globe with a simple spirit of discovery to report back from distant places. Traveling has also prompted artistic explorations of cultural, political, and social conditions in countries around the world. Some works are spontaneous responses to the unfamiliar, while others are rooted in conceptual notions. Featuring over 130 images by 15 famous and lesser-known photographers, this book illustrates key eras and styles in photography from modernism until the present (1880–2015).
