Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of what is currently known about the visual perception of light...The section describing the various lightness errors and illusions is well written and very interesting."--Doody's


"It is a truly excellent monograph on lightness perception, one of the most basic areas in what is most often termed sensation and perception...The book is certain to become a class in that area."--PsycCRITIQUES


"...Part history lesson, part lesson in good science, Gilchrists book is a labour of love; a polemic that is both warning and lesson to the lazy researcher; an exemplar of what it means to dedicate yourself to the pursuit of a question. Gilchrists command of his subject enables him to guide the reader through a rich history of research, to point out the needless repetition, and to show how the errors we make can uncover the software of the brain, before neatly arriving at his anchoring theory of lightness perception."--The Psychologist

Of the 117 books I read in doing research for my book "From Oz to Kansas: Almost Every Black and White Conversion Technique Known to Man" this was one of five books that I not only felt was more than worth the price it is one of the five books I recommend and require as essential reading to my students.

It belongs in any serious practitioner of black and white photography right next to Ansel Adam's and Richard Zaikia's books.

This book is a very good and concise introduction to B&W perception. Interested in color vision? B&W perception should be a starting point. Interested in visual consciousness? B&W consciousness should also be a starting point.
