At the Edge of the Light: Thoughts on Photography and Photographers, on Talent and Genius
by David Travis
Publisher's Description
For the past three decades, David Travis, Curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, has brought to the field of photography criticism a classical liberal arts mindset. His knowledge of the history, art and techniques of photography is unsurpassed, and his deeply held interest in such fields as mathematics, linguistics, and philosophy brings a much needed breadth of discourse to a narrowly conceived field that can, at times, abound with mere blandishments. The book is quite discursive, comprised of seven essays originally offered as lectures. An important volume.
