"Perception and Imaging needs to be read and studied by every photographer and digital imager interested in seeing. You want to learn how to see? Buy this book!' - Camera Arts
"Perception and Imaging is equally impressive and takes the reader to new places in the "mind's eye". After reading Zakia's book, you will probably look at the workd in a new and more enlightened way. But most important , you'll look at the individual elements in a scene much more carefully before you press the shutter release button becasue you'll think about how the viewer sees your picture." - Rick Sammon, Associated Press November 2000
From the Publisher
Dr. Zakia demonstrates how the eye organizes information through a wide variety of images including: photographs, paintings, sculptures, moving images, video, animation, digital imaging, computer displays, and multimedia. With an up-to-date discussion of such topics as subliminals and morphics, anyone creating visual images will benefit from this approach to perception. Each chapter concludes with a series of hands-on exercises. Although addressed to photographers and graphic designers, Perception and Imaging is intended for anyone seriously concerned in the shaping or making of visual messages and visual environments. All have a common purpose- visual communication and expression.
