Focal Press Releases 20th Century Photographers Featuring Notable Photographers


New York, NY—Focal Press just published 20th Century Photographers, a new book by Grace Schaub that is a compilation of interviews and essays covering a broad range of photographers and photographic disciplines.

Each photographer profiled made a living by concentrating on a specific aspect of the craft, but in doing so they transcended their livelihood to become recognized for more than the type of images they created. Each had a distinct “style,” creative approach, dedication to the craft, and point of view about themselves and the world.

The interviews for 20th Century Photographers were conducted during a seminal period in the shift from film to digital photography and from print reproduction to global distribution on the Internet. Just as their photographs continue to inspire today, now the words of these pro photographers will live on as an invaluable reference for photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection goes beyond time and technology.

The book, available in paperback, hardcover and Kindle editions, features interviews with notable photographers, including Mary Ellen Mark, Carl Mydans, O. Winston Link, Arnold Newman, Gordon Parks and Joyce Tenneson. It covers a wide array of photographic fields such as photojournalism, fine art and fashion.

20th Century Photographers: Interviews on the Craft, Purpose, and the Passion of Photography, by Grace Schaub (ISBN 978-1138840959, 292 pages, paperback, Focal Press, 2015) is available at, Barnes & Noble and wherever fine books are sold.
