The Art of Pornography
The Art Of Pornography is a collection of essays on photography by famous photographers, from the late 1920s to the present.
Its purpose is to provide an in-depth look at photography as a cultural phenomenon, and in so doing, to show the diversity of its contributors.
We have compiled a collection that is unique in that it is composed entirely of photographs from the time of its creation, with no editorial control over the images.
The essays range from the highly personal to the provocative, and are presented in chronological order.
Each essay contains a thumbnail image and a description of the photograph.
The collection of articles is also indexed by subject, photographer, and title.
The images include the best of the best, including work by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and others.
The essays are also arranged by subject matter.
For example, the essays on the early history of photography include essays on how photography first gained a foothold in American society, how it was developed in the U.S., and how it evolved over time.
The articles are available for purchase in bookstores, online, and through the National Gallery of Art’s online archive.
The essay collection, edited by David F. Young and published by the Museum of Modern Art, is currently available on Kindle.
