Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A worthy companion to Abbeville's two very successful reference volumes — ArtSpeak: A Contemporary Guide to Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords and ArtSpoke: A Modern Guide to Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords, 1848-1944 — PhotoSpeak is an informative, user-friendly resource. The complexities of photographic techniques, from the calotype to digital imaging and beyond, are explained in clear, straightforward language. The international groups and movements of photography are elucidated in the same effective who-when-where-what format that has made ArtSpeak and ArtSpoke so useful. And the aesthetic concepts and critical language used to explain (and often obscure) photography over the last century and a half are demystified in illuminating, enjoyable prose. An illustrated time line and a chart of all the movements complement the text and the original selection of images.

Book News Annotation:

An illustrated, conveniently small (6x9") encyclopedia of the history, movements, aesthetics, and processes of photography. Entries describe new and old technologies, explain styles and movements around the world, and investigate the role that certain subjects, applications, and approaches have played in photography, such as advertising, fashion, photojournalism, and war. Some entries address issues related to the interpretation, acquisition, and display of photography.
