Editorial Reviews

Review

This anthology is brilliantly selected, combining key texts by critics and practitioners with less known but very illuminating ones. Every essay, interview, and artist's text is a pleasure to read. Campany's thought-provoking introduction, structured around fast and slow, moving and still, provides an excellent overview of the field, picking out a number of key ideas on the relations between cinema and photography, culminating in the digital transformation of both. A great point of entry with much for the aficionado as well.

(Michael Newman, Associate Professor, Art History, Theory and Criticism, School of the Art Institute of Chicago)

[Campany's] producing new ways of seeing and thinking by arranging textual elements into an organism of ideas. Readers will find themselves jumping ahead and then turning back to make new connections and assemblages...In short, you could call the whole thing an act of editorial metamorphosis.

(Chris Chang Film Comment)

By Cristiano Burmester on January 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
The Cinematic is a good selection of texts regarding the cinematic particularities of images. Focused on the relations between photography and cinema, the book also brings concepts of visual culture in general. The nice thing is to be able to select the texts individually without compromising comprehension, although I recommend reading David Campany's other book first (Photography and Cinema).

Book is very timely, broader than expected. Very good eclectic range of texts/pictures for college-level students. Also great reference for mature creatives and artists alike, who seek diverse insights into this quality of depiction, which is increasingly one of several contemporary styles being explored recurrently on an international level.

I like the delivery time. I can not say anything else on the book since it was a present for my son, and I did not read it.
