Photography & photographs

This book gives you the tools you need to understand photography in all its forms.

Is it real?
What do I remember?
How can you tell a story?
Can lying be OK?
What goes where?
Why is it famous?
What makes it problematic?
Who do you think you are?
Stealing or borrowing?
Public or private?

These ten questions launch a thought-provoking investigation into what is really going on when you look at a photograph. Peeling back the layers of everything from the earliest daguerreotypes to your latest selfie, you will discover where to find meaning in an image, and the ways in which the photographer, our current culture, and you yourself all collaborate in the creation of that meaning.
