Genius of Photography


The BBC website has provided this gallery on the `Genius on Photography' to showcase what they describe as "some of the best photography ever taken" from 19th century photographers, such as Eadweard Muybridge and Jacques-Henri Lartigue, to 20th century photographers, Man Ray, Robert Capa, Ed Ruscha, Richard Billingham and Cindy Sherman. The gallery is organised in six sections, featuring the work of three different photographers in each section. This selection has been taken from a television series broadcast by the BBC, and the gallery features one key image representing the photographer, together with an extract from the televised programme.
