Seizing the Light: A Social History of Photography - A great introductory book to the world and craft of photography. Not at all a book about the technical side of the art but a serious look at its history, development and aesthetics. Complete with many, many images from internationally recognized photographers, the book explores the history of photography from the shooter's eye. 

About the Author: Robert Hirsch is an artist, author, curator, and educator. Hirsch is the author of Seizing the Light: A History of Photography; Exploring Color Photography: From the Darkroom to the Digital Studio published by McGraw-Hill and Photographic Possibilities: The Expressive Use of Ideas, Materials, and Processes published by Focal Press.

He is a former associate editor for Photovision magazine and is a contributing writer for Afterimage, Digital Photography (UK), exposure, Ilford Photo Newsletter, and The Photo Review. He was the Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Center for Exploratory and Perceptual Art (CEPA Gallery) in Buffalo, NY.
