A propos de cet article

From the DJ: "W. Eugene Smith and the Photographic Essay" is an indepth study of the work of one of the most important and gifted photojournalists of the postwar period in America. Glenn Willumson begins by examining the antecedents for the photoessay, a genre that developed in unison with the halftone reproduction and the illustrated weekly periodical. He goes on to analyze closely four works that W. Eugene Smith produced for Life magazine, and for which he is best know: "Country Doctor," "Spanish Village," "Nurse Midwife," and "A Man of Mercy." In his study of these works, now acknowledged to set the standard by which the photoessay is judged, Willumson explores the conception, history, political context, and public and critical reception of the essays.".

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This is the first in-depth study of one of the most important photojournalists of the postwar period in America. Examining the antecedents for the photo-essay, a genre that Smith perfected, Glenn Willumson closely analyses the four works that he produced for Life magazine, and for which he is best known: 'Country Doctor', 'Spanish Village', 'Nurse-Midwife', and 'Man of Mercy'. In his study of these works, now acknowledged to set the standard by which the photo-essay is judged, Willumson also argues that Smith's essays are significant cultural documents. An engaging account of Smith's career, W. Eugene Smith and the Photographic Essay reproduces his work as it originally appeared in Life, making it accessible to a new generation.
