Re: Off topic, photo history text question
The Hirsch book lives most strongly in the pre-1945 era. About a quarter of the book pertains to the time period covered by your course.

Subject: Off topic, photo history text question
Sorry this is off topic but I need to draw upon the collective wisdom of the group. For the last few years I have been teaching alt processes and black and white photography. Next semester I have been handed an assignment of teaching a second semester photo history class covering the years 1945 to the present. Can anyone point me towards a text that strongly deals with this time period?
It could be a text book covering the entire history but preferably it would be more specific to the last half of the twentieth century and most importantly, still in print.
