Photography: The Key Concepts, brilliantly engages students in the essential theoretical debates around contemporary photography. While not shying away from the necessity for the serious study of theory, not least in the core approaches of semiotics and psychoanalysis, it strikes just the right balance between erudition and plain explanation. Michael O'Brien, Roehampton University This volume is cleverly written and could be helpful in a context where students' reading is supervised and commented upon. B.P. Chalifour, CHOICE Magazine

For example page 17 "..the more technology develops the diffusion of information (and notably of images), the more it provides the means of masking the constructed meaning under the appearance of the given meaning"
I mean, what on earth does that mean?
For me it's a book to pick up, read a page or two then leave back down for a while.
Photography is a tool for conveying a message, whatever it may be in each individual case. This covers it and more.
