In the two centuries that photography has been practical, it has created a means of communication , the understanding of which is essential to anyone navigating this very visual world.From Daguerre's early images to the real-life sharing of Instagram, photography has never really been "the truth," though nor is it necessarily dishonest. It is ambiguous, complicated and subjective, fleeting and lasting at the same time. This book will introduce the best examples and show you how you can 'read' every image.
