From the start of WW2 to the end of the 20th Century, there was an explosion in the practice of photography and the availability of diverse equipment and processes (e.g. black & white, colour, infrared). The making of images also evolved beyond just an ‘aesthetic art form’, for example; documentary, war reportage, urban/street photography, sports and photojournalism. In this part, we shall explore this dynamic period of photographic history through the influence of different genres and a number of post-war photographers that have become household names; Henri Cartier-Bresson, Don McCullin, Steve McCurry, Vivian Maier and many others.
