The J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of more than one hundred thousand images is among the most comprehensive holdings of rare and important photographs in the world. It ranges from daguerreotypes to works by contemporary photographers such as Frederick Sommer and Manuel Alvarez Bravo.

The fifty selections in this volume include Walker Evans's Citizen in Downtown Havana, The Whisper of the Muse by Julia Margaret Cameron, and Georgia O'Keeffe: A Portrait by Alfred Stieglitz. Also featured are images by Carleton Watkins, André Kertész, Man Ray, Lisette Model, and many others. Each image is described in detail by the curatorial staff of the Department of Photographs at the Getty Museum.
