This cultural history of flash photography from the mid-19th century to the present day will have a special appeal for professional and amateur photographers. * Robert Tanitch, Mature Times * FLASH! is an engrossing book, full of strange nuggets of history, absorbing descriptions of photographic technology and gems of extraordinary people and events from early photographs to contemporary work. It is a well-supported and enjoyable cultural exploration; Flint's analysis is -appropriately-truly illuminating. * Patricia Baker-Cassidy, Photomonitor * Offers an opportunity to reflect on the various changing meanings of flash photography. * Kitty Hauser, Apollo * [A] rich and compelling cultural history of flash photography Flash! should reach a wide and appreciative audience. * Peter Buse, New Formations * A substantial addition to our understanding of how a history of photography might be undertaken and articulated...
