A gaunt woman stares into the bleakness of the Great Depression. An ecstatic sailor plants a kiss on a nurse in the heart of Times Square. A naked Vietnamese girl runs in terror from a napalm attack. An unarmed man, alone, stops a tank in Tiananmen Square. Immediately familiar, each of these photographs has become an icon, galvanizing emotions and shaping public life. But why are these images so powerful? How did they become so prominent in the fast-changing worlds of popular culture and political debate? In No caption needed, Robert Hariman and John Louis Lucaites explore how these and other photojournalistic images have achieved iconic status. No caption needed is a powerful demonstration of the vital role of photojournalism--and the emotional responses it triggers--in a healthy democracy.

This unique book takes a thematic approach to twentieth century photography by focusing on the major developments of the 20-year periods into which the book is divided rather than on individual photographers. Photography 1900 to the Present presents excerpts from a cross-section of writers in the fields of photographic criticism and history on topics relevant to each period with the overview of each section providing a context for the art and culture of that era. The book also includes a timeline to exhibits, books, technical innovations, and professional organizations of each period. It also includes a bibliography of major periodicals dealing with 20th century photography. This enables readers to access current information on contemporary photographers. A valuable reference book for any reader interested in the evolution of 20th century art and photography and its impact on society.

"In this book, Bezner brings back many of those silenced voices and offers the first detailed analysis of social documentary photography from the Depression through the early cold war years. She explores the little-known history of the controversial, blacklisted Photo League and leading member Sid Grossman. And she recalls some of the most important moments in American photographic history of the 1950s, such as Edward Steichen's blockbuster exhibition, The Family of Man, and Robert Frank's influential book, The Americans."--BOOK JACKET.
