About the Author

Pippa Oldfield is a historian and photography curator who has worked on many exhibitions on the theme of photography and war. She is Head of Programme at Impressions Gallery in Bradford, Honorary Research Fellow at Durham University, and Visiting Research Fellow at University of Leeds.


"This is not a book about famous war photographers and their heroic attempts to cover global conflicts. Photography and War is a monumental study of what conflict photographs do and have done globally since 1839 to the present day. . . . Photography and War destabilizes traditional notions of war photography, including a wide range of materials that are often overlooked in the canon. . . . The result is a fascinating, incisive study that leaves the reader wanting to know more. . . . A brilliant book and an excellent resource for all photographic historians."-- "Photographica World"

"Photography and War is an important contribution to the thematic historiography of conflict photography. It is also the latest addition to Exposures, Reaktion's excellent series of books dealing with the history of photography. . . . Oldfield is to be congratulated on her efforts to reference lesser-known conflicts and diverse perspectives within the book. . . . She also, correctly, highlights the highly problematic nature of truth in war photography. . . . Recommended reading for anyone wishing to explore the fascinations and frustrations of war photography in all its forms."-- "Source"
