Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 1998 - Photography - 241 pages
0 Reviews
A history of theories of photographic practices, this text sets out to do a number of things: to recover the critical place of the photographic archive within the avant-garde; to defend the philosophic claims of realism in assessing photography this century; and to present a dialogic defence of the naturalistic or documnetary image.
