Photography: A Very Short Introduction

Steve Edwards

Very Short Introductions

  • A clear, lively, and imaginative approach to the definition, importance, and meaning of photography
  • Challenges readers' notions about the definition of photography, and why it is such an important part of our cultural life
  • Includes both well-known and more unusual photographs, from the highly controversial Cottingley Fairies photograph to Ansel Adams landscapes, and from the shocking and influential Eddie Adams image of a Vietcong suspect being executed to the portrait work of Cindy Sherman.
