“Photography and Culture creates a new context for reflection on the nature of photography, its practices, meanings, and private/public worlds. In doing so it helps to redefine the study of photography as something broader than it is often taken to be.” – Jennifer G. Tucker, Department of History, Wesleyan University
Photography and Culture is at the forefront of new critical, reflective and analytical writing on photography. It is pluralistic in its approach, inter-disciplinary, embracing the historic and the contemporary and independent of any one prevailing theoretical critical model. It mirrors and debates new ways of thinking about photography as the photographic image becomes an ever more central player in our personal and public histories and lifestories. It seeks to become an important text for a new community of interest clustered around those who use reference, interpret or analyze photographic images within their chosen fields in arts and humanities, science and social science.
