Art and Photography Reviews
Please note that the "documents" section, that is over 70 pages long and is usually located at the back of the hardcover series, is missing from the paperback series. If you can afford it, get the hardcover, which also looks much nicer....the documents section often contains documents from history, manifestos, artists writing etc. on cream paper.... I am very disappointed that this was not in the description. Otherwise, if you are new to photography as an artistic practice, this is a great book. Its introduction is excellent for introductory students. For an introduction to photographic theories you should turn to a different book however. (such as "Photography" by David Bate or The Photoography Reader by Liz Wells). This book contains large reproductions in colour. If you like someones work, look it up and find more online. I hope a new version of Vitamin PH comes out, as that was slightly better in terms of seeing peoples work in a more comprehensive way.
Note: This is the same book issued by the publisher five years ago in a hard cover. The following is my review from that time.
