To coincide with the exhibition "Discovering the Language of Photography: The Gernsheim Collection"
, UT Press is publishing a catalogue to accompany it.
Entitled "The Gernsheim Collection"
, the book includes more than 125 full-page plates from the collection with extensive annotations in which the Ransom Center's senior research curator Roy Flukinger describes each image's place in the evolution of photography and within the collection. The catalogue also traces the Gernsheims' passion for collecting and their career as pioneering historians of photography, showing how their efforts significantly contributed to the acceptance of photography as a fine art and as a field worthy of intellectual study.
The book also includes a foreword by George Eastman House Curator of Photographs Alison Nordström and an afterword by former Victoria and Albert Museum Curator Mark Haworth-Booth
A must-have for the libraries of all photo historians. A full press release can be found here
