BOOK EXCERPT:

This richly evocative study of photography has two major emphases, that the language of description (be it title, caption, or text) is deeply implicated in how a viewer looks at photographs, and that the use of a photograph determines its meaning.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"With photography's increasing incorporation into a wide range of fine art practices and the rapid development of evermore sophisticated electronic and digital technologies, it is clear that it is now extremely difficult to say precisely where and how we are to define the boundaries that separate photography from other media. We have been forced to abandon our preconceptions about what a photograph might be or mean and to ask the more fundamental question of where, in the complex space created by contemporary technologies and representational practices, something called the photograph might be; what it might mean for us to identify it and try to relate it to the reality beyond. This collection of essays draws together a range of different historical and philosophical perspectives as a way of addressing the significant changes that have taken place in our critical and theoretical understanding of photography and the photographic over the past decade."--BOOK JACKET.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Learn to ask better, more helpful questions of your work so that you can create stronger and more powerful photographs.

Photographers often look at an image—one they’ve either already created or are in the process of making—and ask themselves a simple question: “Is this a good photograph?” It’s an understandable question, but it’s really not very helpful. How are you supposed to answer that? What does “good” even mean? Is it the same for everyone?

What if you were equipped to ask better, more constructive questions of your work so that you could think more intentionally and creatively, and in doing so, bring more specific action and vision to the act of creating photographs? What if asking stronger questions allowed you to establish a more effective approach to your image-making? In The Heart of the Photograph: 100 Questions for Making Stronger, More Expressive Photographs, photographer and author David duChemin helps you learn to ask better questions of your work in order to craft more successful photographs—photographs that express and connect, photographs that are strong and, above all, photographs that are truly yours.

From the big-picture questions—What do I want this image to accomplish?—to the more detail-oriented questions that help you get there—What is the light doing? Where do the lines lead? What can I do about it?—David walks you through his thought process so that you can establish your own. Along the way, he discusses the building blocks from which compelling photographs are made, such as gesture, balance, scale, contrast, perspective, story, memory, symbolism, and much more. The Heart of the Photograph is not a theoretical book. It is a practical and useful book that equips you to think more intentionally as a photographer and empowers you to ask more helpful questions of you and your work, so that you can produce images that are not only better than “good,” but as powerful and authentic as you hope them to be.

After two happy years together, Ray and Grace relocate again, this time to Washington, D.C., where Grace can pursue her career in the defense industry. The couple rent a condo owned by a secret service agent away on assignment. Everything is proceeding normally until Ray discovers a 35-millimeter camera with film still inside of it, hidden in the back of a cabinet. When he jokes that they should develop the film and see what's on it, he gets a firm rebuke from Grace. But eventually Ray's curiosity gets the better of him. Without Grace's knowledge, he has the film developed. What he discovers plunges them both into an international intrigue involving the FBI, CIA, and Britain's MI6. Following a trail that uncovers international espionage, corruption at the highest levels of government, and a major assassination plot, Ray's loyalties to his adopted country, and even his relationship with Grace, are tested, as he risks his life to unravel the conspiracy surrounding The Photograph. Born in a quiet backwater in rural England, Keith Manton enlisted in the British Royal Navy at age 15 where he grew up fast as he travelled the world. His post-naval career in the agricultural chemicals industry led him to immigrate to the U.S. Currently residing with his wife in Atlanta, he is previously the author of the autobiographical work The Naked Pilgrim.
