    great read, even if you are casually interested in photography. larry sultan's entry almost had me in tears at the last sentence...his entry was about the idea of photographing 'home'.

    Hit and miss. I found myself folding the bottom page over in several essays because they were very inspiring and eloquent. But then there are essays so insufferably, unconscionably, unforgivably pretentious that I wanted to fling the book across the room. The plainspoken, straightforward material is severely undercut by this pap. The final essay, an "exemplary" statement by a photo student, made me retch, and also made me question everything else I'd read. If the editors thought this was a usefu Hit and miss.

The final essay, an "exemplary" statement by a photo student, made me retch, and also made me question everything else I'd read. If the editors thought this was a useful way to write about photography, I really need to rethink their other editorial choices. This is shit: "With empathy ushering my keen eye and innate senses, a harmonic composition evolves among the electrical, euphonic, and aesthetic impressions to which I am most sensitive. I dare to satisfy my subliminal strategy--the playful command and improvisational dance of a spider on his deliberate lattice.... The glistening silk of my web is spread. I am anxious, full of controlled delight... My subjects, often unaware of this brimming synergy, respond with a stare of intolerable tenderness and penetrable human depth that makes me ache with the paroxysm of desire that throbs at a poet's core."

    This is a scholarly collection of articles intended for those seriously interested in photography. There are no photographs illustrated so it's best approached with a previous knowledge of influential photographers. I also suspect that one could quickly look up references on the internet to supplement this as needed. Like any collection of articles, their pertinence to the reader varied. Some I found tedious, some had nuggets of interesting information, and a few were extremely helpful.

I also suspect that one could quickly look up references on the internet to supplement this as needed. Like any collection of articles, their pertinence to the reader varied. Some I found tedious, some had nuggets of interesting information, and a few were extremely helpful. (Someone in 1962 used the phrase in art criticism -- The Gospel According to Malice -- this has been totally unleashed now in the digital age.) The articles contradict themselves with advice from great photographers stating the picture should be properly framed when taken (no cropping) to almost always cropping will be needed. Always the balance is sought between learning from those who have mastered photography and knowing when to veer onto one's own creative path.

    This is a collection of essays and interviews. Some are very interesting and valuable, others less so. I'd have liked to have each piece to be dated, so that a little more historical context is available. Overall, an enjoyable read.

    Various papers on the inspiration, motivation, and philosophical stances on photography from different photographers whether they work in documentary, photojournalism, abstract or street photography. Some great essays, a few not so much.
