Photography, History & Science by Gerald H. Robinson. Robinson has been a teacher of photographic history, an activist attorney and an accomplished photographer, and his multifaceted experience brings a keen perspective to his subjects. His essays analyze a wide range of issues and personalities in 20th Century photography, drawn from Robinson's personal friendships with Minor White, Brett Weston, Ansel Adams, Peter Bunnell and W. Eugene Smith. Robinson focuses his studies through the lens of their historical contexts.

He is the author of Elusive Truth: Four Photographers at Manzanar.

Much contemporary writing on photography seems unrelated to the body politic, so it is refreshing to read Robinson™s Photography, History & Science . . . his analysis of themes and leading historical figures in photography is eerily relevant to issues facing Americans today. *** For those who never got a chance to take Robinson™s course on the history of photography, ...these fourteen essays provide an entertaining and informative surrogate for his lectures. Gary Saretsky, Rutgers University, for The Photo Review
