""In this book I hope to provide a balanced but critically focused view of the art of photography as it has evolved in the United States during the past two decades," writes John Szarkowski, Director of the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art. He sees a divergence between those who view art as a mirror, reflecting a portrait of the artist who made it, and those who view it as a window, through which one may better know the world. Szarkowski selected 127 works which he considers exemplary of the new photography... The author cites two basic influences from the fifties: Minor White's editorial direction of Aperture and Robert Frank's book of photographs The Americans, characterizing opposite modes of the new photography. Other phenomena that have affected the medium since 1960 include the demise of the picture magazine, the decline in opportunities for the professional photographer, the explosive growth of photographic education, and the increasing recognition of the photographic potentials of color."
