Synopsis

«What task do we want photography to perform? Can we consider an image solely for how it appears to us? How do we reveal ourselves through our photographs?»

Over the past few years the concept of photography as a guarantee of reality has been questioned. This book analyzes several aspects of contemporary photography, encouraging those who work with images to be aware creators of reality.
