Pierre Bourdieu

Photography: A Middle-Brow Art
by Pierre Bourdieu
Publisher's Description
The everyday practice of photography by amateur photographers may seem to be a personal and spontaneous activity. But France's leading sociologist and cultural theorist shows that few cultural activities are more consistently structured and systematic than photography. This book of Pierre Bourdieu's essays is greatly rewarding for those who are seriously interested in photography, in its incisive analysis of the ways in which people use their cameras and of the manner in which these uses are socially ingrained.
