Reviews

"This volume is the product of both a large-scale research grant and a conference ... All the same, this book could be of interest to those teaching and studying photography in contemporary art." (International Journal of Education through Art, 2011) "This volume is indispensable for theorists and historians of photography, as well as those concerned with post-1960s contemporary visual culture. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 May 2011)
