Product Description

A study of the fine art of photography analyzes the signature styles of Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Walker Evans, Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Diane Arbus, and William Eggleston, describing how each photographer depicted subjects, what the images reveal about the underlying idea, and the power and impact of photography on viewers.

Editorial Reviews

British novelist Dyer's first book on photography is an inspired, highly personal look at the medium. As a self-proclaimed nonphotographer who does not even own a camera, Dyer effortlessly blends and connects a range of ideas from the worlds of literature, philosophy, history, and the fine arts. Rich with associations and unique connections, his highly readable style is refreshingly idiosyncratic. The novelist does not limit himself to traditional categories of photo criticism. Dyer's intellectual stream of consciousness flows seamlessly through examples of such varied subjects as hats, park benches, doorways, and the blind through discussions of such varied writers and photographers as Robert Frank, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Diane Arbus, John Cheever, Emily Brontë, Francesca Woodman, Walker Evans, and William Wordsworth. Highly recommended.--Shauna Frischkorn, Millersville Univ., PA
