5.0 out of 5 stars recommended to all those interested in photographic theory.., 6 Oct. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Basic Critical Theory for Photographers (Paperback)
Had this book been available during my degree in photography, I would have found it invaluable as an introduction not only to key texts to read alongside the originals, but also as an introduction to a wider range of approaches and writers of photographic criticism. After my degree even, it has been an enlightening book to read.
Ashley la Grange makes photographic theory accessible to those intimidated or unfamiliar with the sometimes overly complicated language used, and guides the reader through points that can be difficult to grasp without losing complexities of the original work.
Having worked with A-level students of photography since my graduation, I have found this an ideal book to not only introduce pupils to main ideas and terminology used in theory, but also to encourage personal responses through thought provoking questions included at the end of each chapter.
This book is different to other introductory books on photographic criticism in that its aims are not only to offer an overview of main debates and texts, but to help the reader gain a greater understanding of what they contain.
