Description - Basic Critical Theory for Photographers by Ashley la Grange

'A good photograph is worth a thousand words, a bad photograph needs a thousand words.' Critical theory is an integral part of the art of photography and Ashley la Grange, critical theory specialist and photography teacher offers a broad overview bridging the gap between practical photography and critical theory encouraging criticism both on a theoretical level and a practical level. Once understood you will be able to evaluate, comment on and appreciate the work of others, and ensure you get the best out of your own work. With a clear and easy to understand approach this innovative text provides an insight into various critical theories of photography, mainly through books and essays by international experts in the field, but also through Ashley la Granges own essays and work, enabling you to start asking your own questions, challenging different theories and finding out more for yourself. Ashley la Grange does not aim to be definitive, rather he actively encourages debate and free-thinking, so that you are ready to tackle photography and constantly question it, to ensure you get the most out of this challenging art form.
