Excellent Exposure Photography

RRP $18.99

Learn To Capture The Most Breathtaking Photos Possible As children, we often recall sitting at our grandparent's homes looking at photographs of our parents taken during their childhood. If we were lucky, we may have the privilege of seeing our grandparent's parent's images captured on film, though those photographs may be in black and white. Inside these photo albums exists an intricate story of one's heritage. Those who enjoy tracing his or her ancestry could easily flip through the pages and discover the story of his or her origins. Yet, as society developed and progressed, we as individuals sought out less and less information on our pasts and looked strictly at the future. We began taking photos for the purpose of telling our story-not for posterity, but for pure intrinsic gain. This led to near catastrophic societal events.

Reading Photography

RRP $49.95

The relatively new medium of photography has generated, from its inception, intense debate over its merits as an art form. (It was not until late in the twentieth century, for example, that colour photography was accepted in the canon of art historical scholarship.) In Reading Photography, Sri-Kartini Leet brings together over 100 extracts from writings on different themes in the medium to explore the art of photography. Beginning with the historical origins of photography, she charts the changes from daguerrotype and formal portraits to the everyday and the emergence of modernism. By the 1920s well-known surrealist artists were using the photograph to develop experimental techniques. Colour, frequently sidelined in early photography, is considered in its various incarnations of advertising, amateur pictures and its adoption in the 1960s as an expressive media. The concept of the photo as a commodifying practice, blurring the boundaries between the artistic and the prosaic, is discussed. Photography was included in the post-modernist movement to question traditional notions of what constitutes art, and several authors have been selected to illustrate this development.Landscape and the city are juxtaposed to demonstrate how location was used in the representation of political, social and psychological states. The role of the individual in these settings is expressed in a chapter on identity and photography. Preceeded by a discussion of its means of rendering the subject an object, a chapter on anthropological photography demonstrates the unattainable desire to achieve an objective view of the different natures of man. Equally, the nature of photography enables artists to dismember the body and thereby dehumanise it. Feminism and the role of the female photographer are implicated in this chapter. The final section considers the impact of the digital age. Sri-Kartini Leet's judicious selection of articles introduces the reader to a broad and enriching range of art historical comment engendered by the photograph, and makes Reading Photography an indispensable aid to the study of photography.
