Synopsis

Bringing together a wide range of essays from contemporary scholars, this collection marks a growing interest in the suggestive yet problematic relation between the experience of photography, video, and film and the perception of the visual world. As an essential concentration of contemporary thought, this selection provides an excellent introduction for newcomers and a fresh point of view for those already engaged in discussions about photography, art, history, education, culture, and criticism. The featured essays are penned by an assortment of noted thinkers, including Jean Baudrillard, Terry Barrett, Philippe Dubois, Willem Elias, Annette W. Balkema, and Jan Simons.
