    • Deep and cerebral. That sets it apart from, and makes it more interesting than, most other books about photography.


    • This book begins by having the reader imagine a world post photographic images by way of James Mudd and his paper "A Photographer's Dream". It is an interesting concept to imagine and an interesting way to frame a book that gives history, asks questions of, and explains a little bit of the theory behind photography.This is a really short book but it is very informative. It is the type of book that allows the reader to think and see something that is rather ordinary and very much taken for grante [...]


    • Should be required crash course reading for anyone interested in visual culture , or those applying philosophy to photography and the role of the image in postmodern society.


    • Excellent, a concise and thoughtful contribution that invites everyone with a camera to think harder about what they choose to photograph and why.


    • The arguments are clearly set out and concise. The account of perspective and camera obscura is illuminating as are all the other theories he deals with. Perfect miniature of a book.


    • The book I read to research this post was Photography A Very Short Introduction by Steve Edwards which I bought from kindle and which is a very good book. This book is mostly about the invention of photography and the development of it into a form of art and there is a section on digital photography, also there is a little on movies. Prior to the invention of photography in the 1830's in prisons for example the guards were allotted a certain number of inmates and had to memorize their faces in c [...]


    • I went into this expecting a short introduction to photo theory and history and that is what I got. There's a lot of information in this, and it's not a 'how to' guide, more a 'how about' guide. This appears to be confusing to some people.


    • جستارهایی در تاریخ و فلسفه‌ی عکاسیبا ترجمه‌ای روان و دقیق



    • Probably the best of this series I've read so far. I know nothing about this subject and I feel like I walked away with a whole lot. Chapter 5 was particularly good.




    • the book will not teach you the nuances of photography,but will give an idea of metamorphosis of photography. was a nice read .
