Reviews

David Bate's engaging book captures both the big picture and significant detail of photographic theory. An excellent starting point, it also rewards repeat reading. * Lucy Soutter, Royal College of Art, UK *
Managing to be simultaneously introductory and comprehensive, Photography: The Key Concepts ably guides the reader through the complexities of its chosen topic, examining photographic practice and discourse with equal acuity. Brought entirely up to date, this new edition is an excellent first stop in any student's quest to understand the nature of the photographic experience. * Geoffrey Batchen, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand *
Using genre as a conceptual framework to understand both what photographs are and how they operate across a myriad of contexts, this revised and expanded edition has lost none of its theoretical rigor or real-world usefulness. This essential book will continue to be a mainstay of photography courses worldwide. * Erina Duganne, Texas State University, USA *
This new edition builds on the legacy of photographic theory and practice deftly presented in the first edition, while incorporating visual content and contemporary issues indicative of a more socially connected global age. Beautifully illustrated with relevant images, Bate makes vivid with great clarity the intellectual terrain upon which theory resides without losing sight of its application and relevance to practice now. * Angela Kelly, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA *
The second edition obviously benefits from a greater number of illustrations, and colour plates, making the publication more enticing and accessible but also allowing the text to be most beneficial and worthwhile. The additional chapters are of course important in terms of acknowledging a few of the dramatic developments in the medium in the years since Bate's first manuscript. The prose is deeply engaging and Bate does not mince his words, providing thoughtful and wise insights to the medium, and also inspiring the reader not to be afraid to formulate and adopt their own point of view. * Jesse Alexander, Falmouth University and Open College of the Arts, UK *
A concise, engagingly written overview of the key debates and ideas in Photography Theory. A key text for undergraduate study. * Tracy Piper-Wright, University of Chester, UK *
