This program includes 1700 pictures, 300 artists, and will appeal to all photographers - amateur and professional alike. This is not only the history of an amazing art form, it is also the adventure of one century and a half during which photography has captured the image of the collective conscience.

"This ten-part series …if it isn't an exhaustive history of the medium to date, it has, as its title suggests, a keen sense of adventure. …there's much in here that's interesting, informative, and quite spectacular to look at. Not the last word on photography, but with more joie de vivre than the buttoned-downed…documentary style." - Digitally Obsessed
