Product description

Review

"A brilliant analysis of the profound changes photographic images have made in our way of looking at the world and at ourselves over the last 140 years."--"Washington Post Book World" "Every page of "On Photography" raises important and exciting questions about its subject and raises them in the best way.""--""The New York Times Book Review" "A book of great importance and originality . . . All future discussion or analysis of the role of photography in the affluent mass-media societies are now bound to begin with her book."--John Berger "Not many photographs are worth a thousand of [Susan Sontag's] words."--Robert Hughes, Time "After Sontag, photography must be written about not only as a force in the arts, but as one that is increasingly powerful in the nature and destiny of our global society."--"Newsweek" ""On Photography" is to my mind the most original and illuminating study of the subject."--Calvin Trillin, " The New Yorker"""

Book Description

Susan Sontag's groundbreaking critique of photography asks forceful questions about the moral and aesthetic issues surrounding this art form.
