(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Why was the first human ever captured on film caught by pure luck? Where is the human blind spot, and why don't you realise you have one? What does authenticity mean in an art where originals can be reproduced infinitely and manipulated flawlessly? More than a mere collection of trivia, this book tackles the big picture of what photography means.Photography takes a revolutionary approach to understanding the 50 most thought-provoking concepts, techniques and technologies that have shaped photography into the ever-present art form it is today. From the science of converting light into digital information, to the philosophical implications of freezing a moment in time, big ideas are tackled in bite-sized units: two pages, 300 words and one representative image at a time. Packed with world-renowned photographs, from the earliest daguerreotypes to cutting-edge contemporary work and biographies of leading photographers, this pithy analysis will capture your curiosity and expose you to new ideas about your camera, your photography and the visual culture that surrounds you.
