Photography's greatest success has been in storytelling, based on its unique ability to capture images from reality. In fact, capture is what photography does best, reporting the world, life and society. Many enthusiasts who have mastered photography techniques search for direction and themes to help drive their creative ambitions-the kind of structure narrative offers. In The Photographer's Story, best-selling author Michael Freeman provides guidance and encouragement, drawing on his own experiences and assignments, but also on the rich history of documentary photography, which blossomed in the 1920s and has never faded. Michael Freeman is the author of the global bestseller, The Photographer's Eye. Now published in sixteen languages, The Photographer's Eye continues to speak to photographers everywhere. Reaching 100,000 copies in print in the US alone, and 300,000+ worldwide, it shows how anyone can develop the ability to see and shoot great digital photographs.
