About the Author

Pierre Bourdieu is Professor of Sociology at the College de France and Director of Studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales.


"At his best Pierre Bourdieu observes the world like an acerbic novelist, and Photography is Bourdieu at his best - its insights into the popular use of the camera still offer the delights of recognition and a valuable reminder that cultural studies need the empirical and theoretical underpinnings provided by good, Durkheimian sociology." Simon Frith "Interesting ... in its scope and insights." The Guardian "Pathbreaking [and] intriguing." Times Higher Education Supplement
