Publisher Comments:

This handy volume provides an up-to-the-minute guide to the techniques, aesthetics, and
critical jargon of photography.
A worthy companion to Abbeville's two very successful reference volumesÑArtSpeak: A
Contemporary Guide to Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords and ArtSpoke: A Modern Guide to
Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords, 1848Ð1944ÑPhotoSpeak 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.
Gilles Mora, who lives in France, is the author of several photographic monographs, as
well as an editor at Cahiers de Photo, a preeminent journal of photography.
