Publisher's description: This updated and expanded edition provides a thorough grounding in the place of photography in our society and a guide to the extraordinary range of photographic genres. Since its introduction nearly 200 years ago, photography has become part of everyday life, a position consolidated by the recent development of digital imaging and manipulation. Now with two new chapters on amateur snapshots and theories of 'looking', this book explains the extraordinary power of photography to confirm identity, sell products, reshape the real, visualise the news and to record and communicate the personal moment. With 80 new illustrations, this second edition explores in more detail the international and cultural diversity of this fascinating and pervasive media. An ideal guide for students, it introduces the key theoretical and critical concepts of documentary, portraiture, landscape, still life, art, amateur, institutional and global photography.
