Photography and Literature in the Twentieth Century (Hardcover) by Cunningham David Fisher Andrew Mays Sas
Photography and Literature in the Twentieth-Century offers an accessible and fresh approach to an object of interdisciplinary research that is currently receiving increased international attention. Providing a broad historical schema and examining pivotal moments within it the collection brings together a range of writers and practitioners who help to guide the reader through a historical cross-section of current work in this area. Unlike most existing studies this volume considers both key literary figures from Proust to Sebald and photographic practitioners from Heartfield to Sekula in order to give a commanding overview of its subject that is both well-informed and often ground-breaking. With original and accessible essays by acknowledged experts in the field this is a book that should be of interest not only to students and teachers in departments of literature and photography but also to those in cultural studies and art history as well as photographic artists.
