An anthology of essays first published in "Camerawork Magazine", a UK magazine devoted to a critical and contextual study of photography. It established itself as a source for challenging hallowed ideas about photography and photography education, and many of its contributors and editors are now regarded as pioneering photography practitioners, artists, theorists and teachers. Introductions place the pieces in historical context. The book covers a wide range of photographic genres including documentary, fashion, amateur, self-identity, and representation of class, and stresses the concept of visual culture, its context and its wider importance.

    Im don't study photography at any academic level. I think this book could have value to somebody studying photography at degree level with emphasis on the social/political.I am fairy well read on photography, I've read a lot of Susan Sontag, Roland Barthes and John Berger and I struggled to read all of them but I did manage it, and generally understood them. These essays however seem to go so wildly academic and abstract. I feel each essay raises one single point in the opening introduction and the rest of the essay adds nothing else to that one glint of information. I feel if you cut the essays down to their most concise, the point a photographer would find useful, it would be equal to only a single chapter in Susan Sontag's On photography.The Book starts of well with "ways of remembering" from John Berger. Their may of been a couple of other essays which I found readable. One essay starts of promising with the idea that Kodak wanted to populate the market with snapshot shooters etc then just as I got interested in that point - it turned into a keynote breakdown of sales and marketing figures, then the essay ended.I don't want to slate the book as I feel I'm not the target audience. I hate political photography books even if this book does argue that theirs always a political aspect to photography. I feel like I'm being bored to death with irrelevant academic philosophy and at the same time sucked into a world of Arthur Scargill and Neil Kinnock.
