Fort in-8 format oblong, couverture illustrée cartonnée bleue sous jaquette photo. 288 pages. Textes en anglais : "Making American Images" de William Hannigan, "Eye News: A Short History of Picture News in America" de Ken Johnston, illustré de 300 reproductions photographiques noir & blanc pleine page pour la plupart. "Picture Machine explores the impact of photography and the news wire services on American culture, examining the historical, social, and cultural significance of the rise of the news-photo agencies, th eimages they created, and how these both reflected and shaped the American identity...

It is often these photographs, created on "off" days, which are now among the most interesting - not only because they illustrated what images were chosen to circulate when the news did not dictate the selection, but also because they create a complete record of American life, covering sports, crime, celebrities, soldiers, politicians, mobsters, disasters, and socialites to the everyday people living their lives..."
