This present incarnation in easy to use CD is far more complete with over 6,000 photographers listed from the birth of the medium until today. The data includes a lexicon of processes, biographies, exhibition lists, bibliographies, etc. for 3,135 photographers; abbreviated listing on 3,000 additional photographers from 71 nationalities. You can view 5,900 images, and search the data base by sex, nationality, period, themes, etc., and there is a lengthy historical chronology. The text can be used in either French or English. This is by far the most complete biographical - bibliographic tool available for serious researchers, historians, curators, students and dealers involved in the medium of photography. Compatible with either PC or MAC. Originally published at $285.00.
