The Re-view catalogue was produced to accompany the NGV exihibition of the same name featuring a small selection of some of the great international photographs in the gallery's collection. Selected from each decade of the medium's history from the 1840s onwards, it shows the evolution of this unique art form through some of its best loved and most remarkable images. Every photograph chosen has a distinct story to tell, not only about what is shown but also about the place the work has in the artist's career; how it relates to photographic history; and its cultural and social context. Artists included are William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron, Nadar, László Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, Ansel Adams, Robert Frank, Boyd Webb and Yee I-Lann.
