Book of the Week...
Photography Theory Edited by James Elkins
(2007 Taylor & Francis Group)
How do we speak in one breath of photography, and unproblematically incorporate the range of objects and practices that includes daguerreotypes, calotypes, 35-mm prints, Polaroids, and digital photographs into a convincing theoretical model?
This book of essays by nine leading art theorists and critics presents a contemporary conversation on ways of conceptualizing photography and photography theory.
