Since its appearance as an art form in itself in the early 1900s, photography has developed in leaps and strides, rivaling traditional modes of portraiture in ever-innovative forms, from heliogravures to digital prints and even mobile phone shots -- and the works here are evidence of just how varied and ever-innovative this art form is.
