Summary
The Genius Of Photography is the BBC's most comprehensive look at one of the world's most influential art forms - exploring every aspect of photography from daguerreotype to digital. Featuring many of the greatest photographs ever taken - and the photographers whotook them - this new, six-part series looks at the history of photography, from Man Ray and Walker Evans to more contemporary geniuses such as Richard Avedon, Sally Mann and Martin Parr. Fixing the shadows (part 1) tracks the first attempts to make images permanent and the mass appeal that the invention of Kodak created. Documents for artists (part 2) looks at photography after World War One in which the potential of photography attracted the attention of artists and governments alike. Right time, right place (part 3) examines the photographs of D-Day, the Holocaust and Hiroshima raising questions about history as seen through the viewfinder. Paper movies (part 4) charts the golden age of 'photographic journeys' and how the use of colour slowly became a credible medium for 'serious' photographers. We are family (part 5) looks at the way photographers conquered the street and the road, then approached the final frontier: the home, the self, and private life. Snap judgements (part 6) shows how photography has become part of the art world where a single image can cost $2.9m and, in the digital world, where all images are possible
