Overview

An invaluable course in photographic aesthetics."—Modern Photography

Paul Hill's seminal book of photojournalism is back, now revised to cover the most contemporary issues in photography, and more beautiful than ever, with bronze panels and lettering on the cover. The focus is on the images themselves, with abundant examples by some of the world's finest practitioners. The exquisitely designed pages feature Hill's own works, of course, and also those of such greats as Victor Burgin, Fay Godwin, Emmett Godwin, Duane Michals, and Jo Spence. Hill tackles such basic but important topics as how the camera sees photographs and how to read them, and also analyzes contemporary attitudes to photography and the different approaches taken by a variety of photographers to a range of subjects.
