Photography: The Key Concepts, brilliantly engages students in the essential theoretical debates around contemporary photography. While not shying away from the necessity for the serious study of theory, not least in the core approaches of semiotics and psychoanalysis, it strikes just the right balance between erudition and plain explanation. Michael O'Brien, Roehampton University This volume is cleverly written and could be helpful in a context where students' reading is supervised and commented upon. B.P. Chalifour, CHOICE Magazine
