Photography Changes Everything by Marvin Heiferman,Merry A. Foresta

Photography Changes Everything offers a provocative rethinking of photography's impact on our culture and our daily lives. Compiling hundreds of images and responses from leading authorities on photography, it offers a brilliant, reader-friendly exploration of the many ways in which photographs package information and values, demand and hold attention, and shape our knowledge of and experience in the world. The volume draws on the extraordinary visual assets of the Smithsonian Institution's museums, science centers and archives to launch an unprecedented interdisciplinary dialogue on photography's capacity to shape and change our experience of the world. Photography Changes Everything features over 300 images and nearly 100 engaging short texts commissioned from experts, writers, inventors, public figures and others—from Hugh Hefner to John Baldessari, John Waters, Robert Adams, Sandra Phillips and many others. Each story responds to images selected by project contributors. Together they engage readers in a timely exploration of the extent to which our lives have been transformed through our interactions with photographic imagery. Edited by leading photography curator and author Marvin Heiferman, Photography Changes Everything provides a unique opportunity to better understand the history, practice and power of photography at this transitional moment in visual culture.
A superb book on the impact of photography in every facet of out lives.
Great and interesting book of essays about photography.
Great book, I had to get it for my photography class, I loved reading the stories in here.
good item for the price
One of the most original and useful books on photography I have encountered since I started working on photograph interpretation in 1998. It explains how photographs have changed our view on matters through photography specifically and in a huge variety of areas. I came across it by accident, like one often does, when doing a Coursera course just to brush up my skills. i think I've failed the course but I've discovered this book.
Each essay is one or two pages which makes this an easy pick up, read, put down. Some of the essays left me wanting more info and examples and some were just, well, silly. But, it is interesting to see how what is a common photograph made a difference.
Perfect for my class
