I think it's especially suited to the fine-art (artist) photographer who is interested in exploring how images happen; why certain themes repeat themselves in a photographer's work; and in seeing that there is a one-to-one relationship between the photographer, the camera and the subject; and the psychoanalyst, the couch and other tools, and the patient.
Takes a unique look at the relationship between psychiatry and photography (both born around the same time).
I found the history, and the author's inclusion of interesting facts, to be absolutely fascinating. He takes readers through a journey from the 17th century painters who used "the light," through the first photograph by Nicephore Niepce, to modern-day artists like Beckerman and Crewdson.
The connection between Freud and Edward Bernays, the father of modern public relations. Bernays even coined the name. Joseph Goebbels, used the strategies to encourage the German people to back the Nazi party, as Goebbels and Hitler created the horror that was their legacy.
Bray takes his readers on a "I couldn't put the book down" journey through photography and its connection to psychology.
The author draws attention to the underbelly and highlights a lot of persuasive elements that I hadn't really processed or noticed until he mentioned them. Very insightful book, highly recommend it.
