Photography: The Key Concepts, brilliantly engages students in the essential theoretical debates around contemporary photography. While not shying away from the necessity for the serious study of theory, not least in the core approaches of semiotics and psychoanalysis, it strikes just the right balance between erudition and plain explanation. Michael O'Brien, Roehampton University This volume is cleverly written and could be helpful in a context where students' reading is supervised and commented upon. B.P. Chalifour, CHOICE Magazine


Over the last two hundred years photography has become part of everyday life, a position consolidated by the recent development of digital imaging and manipulation. Used to confirm identity, to sell products, to reshape the real, to visualise the news, to record and communicate the personal moment, and as an art form in its own right, photography is now one of the most accessible and pervasive of media. "Photography: The Key Concepts" provides an ideal guide to the place of photography in our society and the extraordinary range of photographic genres. Outlining the history of photography and explaining the body of theory which has built up around its use, the book guides the reader through the genres of documentary, portraiture, landscape, still life, art and global photography. Illustrated with a range of historical and contemporary images and case material, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in photography.
