Editorial Reviews

Review

“A brilliant analysis of the profound changes photographic images have made in our way of looking at the world and at ourselves over the last 140 years.” ―Washington Post Book World

“Every page of On Photography raises important and exciting questions about its subject and raises them in the best way.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“A book of great importance and originality . . . All future discussion or analysis of the role of photography in the affluent mass-media societies are now bound to begin with her book.” ―John Berger

“Not many photographs are worth a thousand of [Susan Sontag's] words.” ―Robert Hughes, Time

“After Sontag, photography must be written about not only as a force in the arts, but as one that is increasingly powerful in the nature and destiny of our global society.” ―Newsweek

On Photography is to my mind the most original and illuminating study of the subject.” ―Calvin Trillin, The New Yorker
