    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubThis was terribly interesting but I think you needed to know a little than Sontag explained to understand where she is coming from in all this The important thing to remember is that Plato wanted to banish the artists and he wanted to do this for a very good reason To Plato the world we live in isn’t really the real world – the real world is a world we cannot have access to the real world is where things never die things remain the same and don’t change Change a

    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubI found this book utterly maddening I'm giving it four stars not for the content itself but for the quality of thinking I did while reading I'm rather surprised not to have found any comments in other reviews regarding Sontag's horrific tactlessness in her discussions of freaks in the context of Diane Arbus' work Less shocking but also disappointing her wholesale dismissal of the Surrealists or as she calls them two or three times the Surrealist militants which they decidedly were not Overall I found the writing while at times illuminating overwhelmingly and groundlessly judgmental Sontag's logic is often very very dubious she is as dangerous as Camus I'm thinking of Le mythe de Sisyphe when it comes to the seductiveness of fine well articulated prose which uses its own music to trick the reader into believing the message Beware

    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubWritten in cool and caustic prose On Photography consists of seven meditations on the medium's ethics social uses and history Sontag drops epigram after epigram aphorism after aphorism in these contentious essays as she speeds through considering the subjects of photography's most famous practitioners be it the rural towns of Roy Stryker or the freaks of Diane Arbus Despite the essays' fast pace the work as a whole lacks anything approaching a coherent direction or central thesis It meanders excessively Far from wanting to develop a cogent argument Sontag so often seems most concerned

    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubI've never read anything by Susan Sontag but encountered mentions of her book On Photography numerous times in various contexts It's hailed as one of the most highly regarded books of its kind I like taking photographs myself and thought I would find it interestingThose seeking a well constructed history of photography its development and an introduction to various schools and movements of photography as I did are likely to be disappointed On Photography has no central thesis and is a collection of essays about the meaning and career of photographs as described by Sontag herself This isn't a book on photography it's a book on Susan SontagAlthough she writes about a wealth of photographers Sontag doesn't explore any of them in depth she moves from one to another very quickly and often they are reduced to backgrounds for her own thoughts and opinions on photographs which often include comparisons and references to other media This can make for some very d

    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubSusan Sontag starts her book on photography with a reference to Plato's cave a dark prison only a few escape This is not accidental It defines and presages the thinking that underlies the whole book By placing a reference to Plato at the very beginning Sontag is telling us 'I subscribe to the fundamental Platonic principles the real world vs the world of imitations Forms vs art Reality vs the cave' Or something like that So what does

    Paperback ↠ On Photography Kindle ¼ photography ebok, On Photography EpubI approached On Photography expecting a sense of warmth and intellect that Maria Popova paints Susan Sontag with One essay in I was slightly disappointed to feel no warmth So I read an interview of hers where the interviewer says the yes and no attitude is typical of her writing something that I had experienced as well She responds by saying that it is not yes and no rather this but also that She argues in defence of the premise of seriousness an idea both close to my heart and valuable for the essays in this volume Seriousness does not mean the heaviness equates it to rather slow deliberate rigour A quality present in all the essays as she entertains many aspects of photography for the benefit of the readerSontag looks at photography from the perspective of the photo the photogra
