A Bigger Picture. A Manual of Photojournalism in Southern Africa

” The book is divided into two main sections. The first section deals with technical aspects of the camera and darkroom techniques. The second section introduces the reader to critical photographic theory and covers three broad areas of concern: visual literacy, representation and ethics. This section also focuses on the construction of meaning through photographic appreciation and analysis. Over 200 photographs from the region (Southern Africa) appear in A Bigger Picture, and the voice of the photographer, of various critics and of the author, link each photograph to wider debates. The relevance of critical writing in the making and understanding of the photographic medium is also highlighted. This offers the reader the rare opportunity to hear the story behind the making of the image.” From the rear panel blurb.

Condition: Very good. Light wear to the card wraps.
