30 Second Photography

Big ideas, fast and fun.

If you’re anything like us at ilex, you love taking photos, but perhaps you don’t always have time to think about your work in a wider context. Well you do now! Our unique new 30-Second Photography lets you explore the power and magnitude of photography in, well, 30-second chunks. Each introduces a great name, styles or technique, all carefully edited for maximum impact by New York’s Professor Brian Dilg. Trust us, it’s exhilarating.

Who invented photography first, Fox Talbot or Louis Daguerre? Who got the patent? Who made the most money? Who are the greatest photographers and what
have their contributions been?
This book takes the 50 most important aspects of photography both the major styles and the key technical aspects that make them possible and explains each
in two pages, 300 words and one picture.
