After four decades and countless lectures, assignments, and critiques, Professor Philip Perkis, has compiled his thoughts on photography education in this unassuming volume. In Perkis words: "Teaching photography, unlike teaching French or driving, provides no sure, measurable result. (How much have I helped a person be more sensitive to their visual world?) This puts all of us who teach photography close to the end of the plankkeeping things alive." In this book, Perkis expresses his acute observations as a means of provoking discussion and inspiring the younger generation of photography students and educators. Carefully typeset with ample margins and devoid of photographic images, the reader is encouraged to exercise the minds capacity to visualizea vital tool for the art of making photographs.
