THE SHOT THAT MADE ME
100 world renowned photographers share their career-defining images and the compelling stories behind them. image ©Tom Stoddart
Hello! I’m photographer Peter Dench and I’ve curated a book, The Shot That Made Me - photographers share their career-defining image.
I asked over 200 photographers (246 in fact) to pinpoint the one single image that had the most impact on their career.
Some photographers knew exactly what it is and when their career-defining image was taken, other photographers attribute it more vaguely.
For some it came early in their development, or was an award winning image that significantly advanced their practice.
In partnership with acclaimed art book publisher, Schilt Publishing, we have selected 100 photographers and a 100 photographs with remarkable stories behind them.
The book has been designed by the outstanding Victor Levie.
The pictures and explanations in this quality book are as diverse as the work and nationalities of the photographers featured.
From women at war to men behind bars, nudist beaches to the cowboys of America, Chinese gymnasts to right wing groups, from fluffy animals to undressed celebrities.
The Shot That Made Me provides intimate, acute, engaging and heroically revealing insights into what propelled some of the worlds most renowned photographers to start, and continue making pictures.
"Books matter. They are our legacy and I’m going to need a LOT of you to help to get this one to press. Together, we can inspire generations. Thank you very much in advance for any support you can deliver." Peter Dench
