    this book is dense with information and is especially good on the very early days of photography there is less emphasis on recent photographs and their impact on cultureeven the Dorthea Lange Walker Evans era is for me touched too lightly upon I also think there isn't enough on the impact of magazines like Life and National Geographic on the construction of cultural consciousness But in all a book that warrants endless perusing I'm sad to have to return it to the library

    Not a bad textbook it's good because it has a lot of photo's in it and they are colored so that's nice and it's much easier to get an idea of what the author is saying when there is actually something to go on It's uite easy to read as well and I didn't find that I had to re read it a ton of times to understand what Marien was getting at which made it uite easy to study from as well My only real problem with it was I found it jumped around far too much for my liking and I disliked the artist profiles that were randomly stuck in the text because you'd begin reading a sentence and then all of a sudden one of those would be there Overall it's a good textbook A bit too expensive though I have issues paying 107 for something I'm gonna highlight in
