Esther Bubley's World of Children in Photographs

£8.99

Product description

Photographing children is a notoriously difficult art - one that requires great skill and patience on the part of the photographer. Ideally, one must capture a child's sweetness without being cloying... record innocence and inexperience without being patronizing... distill the essence of childhood without being trite. Esther Bubley, former 'Life' photographer and renowned photojournalist, enjoys a long-standing reputation as a master of this demanding art. Over a period of many years, she has developed a special rapport with children - a relaxed and easy manner that puts her young subjects at ease. The resulting photographs are notable for their charm, naturalness (even the posed shots seem spontaneous) and honesty. This volume contains a rich selection of her best work with children - 159 black-and-white photographs taken for magazine assignments, documentary projects, advertisements and family albums. Throughout, they reveal Bubley's unerring instinct for the telling moment - the fleeting instant that tells a story and reveals children at their natural best.

Esther Bubley's World of Children in Photographs. Published by Dover 1981. 105pp purely black-and-white photographs - no text other than photographer's preface. Paperback. Book condition: Good - some creasing at corners of front cover and slight wear to top of spine. Otherwise tightly bound and clean throughout.
