    این کتاب مجموعه مقالاتی است درباره عکاسی از افراد مختلف. یک مقاله از این کتاب مفصل را می توانید در آرت کالت 16 پیدا کنید. شاید بازهم از این کتاب مقاله ای چاپ کردم.در هر حال کتاب معروفی است. عکس روی جلد خود مولف و جمع آورنده است.

    The book is good for bachelor's level. But please don't get attracted with names like Eco or Barthes (Ecos' essay is just 2 pages long and Barthes's extracts from Camera Lucida are couple of pages too).The book is appropriate for photography students, whereas for other interested readers it would be better to get the originals of those essays (condensed) in this reader.

    If you have an interest in photo history, I highly recommend this book. It's a collection of readings by or on historical figures in photography such as Susan Sontag, Roland Barthes, Umberto Eco, and many others.

    This book has some very intense essays. Some of them are incredibly academic and intellectual and take a lot of focus to read. Even with the difficulty there is a lot of really good stuff in here for any one interested in photography past it being a hobbie.

    Had to stop reading it when I got to the marxist-feminist re-evaluation of that noted mysoginist Edward Weston. And how about the typos. Seriously, did anybody proof this before it went to print?

    A really excellent compendium of photography essays that make you sound like a really well-rounded, academic badass when you converse with art historians and photography critics.
