The Photograph: A Strange, Confined Space
by Mary Price
Publisher's Description
This richly evocative study of photography investigates the photograph's reliance on text and context for its social and historical meaning. Referring extensively to Walter Benjamin's theory of the aura, Price investigates and clarifies photography's position in relation to the other arts. The argument put forward is relevant to contemporary photography as an independent representational medium.
