TheMoreDefining photography is impossible. Revealing it is another matter, and thats what The Concise Focal Encyclopedia of Photography does, with each turn of the page.History: The technical origins and evolution of photography are half of the story.

The other half consists of the ways that cultural forces have transformed photography into a constellation of practices more diverse than any other mode of representation.

Questions of ethics, desire, perception, digitization, and commercialization all vie for attention. Hear what the experts have to say about crucialissues such as whether or not the images we take today will last the test of time, and if so, how?When material is covered this skillfully, concise is no compromise. The Concise Focal Encyclopedia of Photography is packed with useful information, compellingideas, and - best of all - pure pleasure.
