What a beautiful book on photography It helped me get acuainted with photographs and its photographers helped me understand an art that I was unaware of Of course one is made aware of photography on a daily basis what will all the imageries from all the media we connect to experiencing photographs is almost a daily routine Inspite of it being a part of our daily emotional diet we are so oblivious of its power This book helped me understand the power meaning and personal impact of photographs which should be obvious but is just probably subconscious or us being ambivalent about it A photograph can change our mood has the power to transport us can haunt us can provoke action can inspirePhotography aside from the techniue and science is deep enough that many of its exponents are so philosophical and profound and wise in analysing and critiuing their art and essence of individual styles themes and captured images The author borrows and compiles some such beautiful thoughts and observations in presenting his own views of each theme that he elucidates themes ranging from Blind beggars Nudes Chairs Hats Back Beds Bench Fence Street Windows Doors Drive in theatres Barber shop horror of war and terror Themes which formed the motif and subject of acclaimed photographers I was not aware of Such lifeless objects when caught in isolation as a photographic image can represnt so many feelings and meanings While defining or analysing art is speculative and does not reflect the artist motivation or understanding of his creation absolutely such analysis as this book nevertheless helps one to make senses or measure or calibrate or extend ones own personal thought and meaning and impression of the art I thank Dryer for masterfully introducing such an art to me He has tried to keep it simple and collouial probably got so carried away that he keeps mentioning pussy and I don t know if patronisingly expresses disappointment when not enough pussy is presented by a photographer I mean pussy sounds lovely in an erotic novel or post modern solilouy but seems a bit off in such a work inspite of it wanting to appear anti scholarly Also so many names in single sentences just got me lost sometimes since I am not familiar with all these artist Inspite of such minor uibbles of mine all in all a great book When i look through that camera now I will try to see the world from a better viewpoint LiterallyAn excerpt which struck so powerfully while referring to 9 11Of all the messages photographed in the wake of 911 none is as poignant and simple so simple as to be self evident as one scrawled in felt tip on the wall of a building The picture is slightly blurred the message difficult to read Photography s uniue capacity to preserve or bring back the dead has often been remarked on For Barthes this the return of the dead is the terrible thing that we see in all photographs This photograph affirms the opposite point of view conveys the simple message that is also there in all photographs You are alive
