Product description

Review

Managing to be simultaneously introductory and comprehensive, Photography: The Key Concepts ably guides the reader through the complexities of its chosen topic, examining photographic practice and discourse with equal acuity. Brought entirely up to date, this new edition is an excellent first stop in any students quest to understand the nature of the photographic experience. --Geoffrey Batchen, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Using genre as a conceptual framework to understand both what photographs are and how they operate across a myriad of contexts, this revised and expanded edition has lost none of its theoretical rigor or real-world usefulness. This essential book will continue to be a mainstay of photography courses worldwide. --Erina Duganne, Texas State University, USA

This new edition builds on the legacy of photographic theory and practice deftly presented in the first edition, while incorporating visual content and contemporary issues indicative of a more socially connected global age. Beautifully illustrated with relevant images, Bate makes vivid with great clarity the intellectual terrain upon which theory resides without losing sight of its application and relevance to practice now.
Angela Kelly, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA

This new edition builds on the legacy of photographic theory and practice deftly presented in the first edition, while incorporating visual content and contemporary issues indicative of a more socially connected global age. Beautifully illustrated with relevant images, Bate makes vivid with great clarity the intellectual terrain upon which theory resides without losing sight of its application and relevance to practice now. Angela Kelly, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA David Bates engaging book captures both the big picture and significant detail of photographic theory. An excellent starting point, it also rewards repeat reading. --Lucy Soutter, Royal College of Art, UK
