Documentary series on the history of photography, from portraits to photojournalism, from art to advertising. Photography at its best is a medium that makes viewers eyewitnesses to history. Just how good is photography at making sense of what it records? Is getting in close and risking a neck always better than standing back? This episode investigates how photographers dealt with dramatic and tragic events like D-Day, the Holocaust and Hiroshima, and the questions their pictures raise.
