50 Years Modern Color Photography, 1936-1986/
50 Jahre moderne Farbfotografie, 1936-1986
(German and English Edition) [Hardcover] by Manfred Heiting, DGPh., Frankfurt

I am reducing my photography book library that I have acquired over several decades.

This book is one of the gems. This is quite a rare book in the United States. I have never seen copies available for sale in the US. The book was published in Germany for sale in the German market at Photokina in 1986. The only reason I have them is because in 1986 I realized that it is a wonderful book. I brought a case to the USA from Germany. I gave many of them away. I am keeping one copy and have a few left I would like to sell.

Condition: like new. They have been stored in the original packaging since 1986.

This is a spectacular history of color photography because it includes a history of both materials and beautiful reproductions. There are over 464 photographs that includes the best work of master photographers as well as the work of some photographers that are previously unfamiliar to me. The work of over 350 photographers is included. I'll include the names of some that may be widely known. It is safe to say that nearly all well-known color photographers as well as many unheralded but accomplished photographers are included:

Ansel Adams, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Sir Cecil Beaton, Stanley Bowman, Wynn Bullock, Harry Callahan, Guenther Cartwright, Lucian Clergue, Van Deran Coke, Judy Dater, Ivan Dmitri, Doc Edgerton, Jim Dow, William Eggleston, Chris Enos, Elliott Erwitt, Walker Evans, Erwin Fieger, Franco Fontana, Ralph Gibson, Ernst Haas, Betty Hahn, Hiro, David Hockney, Horst B. Horst, Eiko Hosoe, Art Kane, Yosuf Karsh, Victor Keppler, Andre Kertesz, Robert Ketchum, William Klein, Mark Kelett, Jay Maisel, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, John Margolies, Mary Ellen Mark, Joel Meyerowitz, Robert Misrach, Arnold Newman, Helmut Newton, Olivia Parker, Irving Penn, John Pfahl, Elliott Porter, Marion Post Wolcott, Stephen Shore, Lord Snowdon, Al Souza , Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Joyce Tennyson, Pete Turner, Jerry Uelsman, Andy Warhol, William Wegman, Cole Weston, Edward Weston, Don Worth, Max Yavno.
