A timely, contemporary treatment of a complex subject trapped in its historical roots... The title offers an intelligently considered introduction to the genre of landscape photography. It also treats many of the relevant associated issues/topics that form the intellectual context for serious contemporary practitioners. Prof. Thomas Drysdale, Institution NYU, Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Photography and Imaging, US There are many ways such a book could contextualize the subject of photography and landscape, the book does this in a clear and detailed way. The book taps into debates and practices that are contemporary yet builds that bridge between FE and HE in a way that is intelligent and understandable to those coming to the subject at the beginning of their studies. Russell Roberts, University of South Wales. UK The book fills a void in the marketplace [and] the author puts across a wide range of questions that encourage the reader to explore the genre. This book supports and questions the journey of landscape photography. Steven Tynan, lecturer BA (Hons) Photography, Falmouth University, UK An appropriate introduction to landscape photography [that] goes beyond the technical know-how of so many books on the market, offering a deeper level of engagement with the subject. --Dr Mike Simmons, Programme Leader MA Photography, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
