Through an extraordinary selection of outstanding images, along with revelatory interviews, Photowisdom: Master Photographers on Their Art provides an unrivalled exploration of the richness of contemporary photographic practice. The purpose and the technique of photography is explained and discussed with many of the greatest photographers of our time. They share their visions, their challenges, their motivations and their methods, as we are taken inside the work and behind the lens through original and highly accessible 'in-their-own-words' commentaries. The photographers featured range from award-winning photojournalists to celebrity shooters; from politicised environmentalists to elusive artists; from timeless veterans to new visionaries; and from great storytellers to the makers of lasting icons.
