Jerry L. Thompson â Why Photography Matters eBook

Jerry L. Thompson â Why Photography Matters eBook Structs an argument that moves with natural logic from Thomas Pynchon and why we read him for his vision and not his command of miscellaneous facts to Jonathan Swift to Plato to Emily Dickinson who wrote Tell all the Truth but tell it slant to detailed readings of photographs A load of academic tripe focusing solely on fine art photography I had hoped the reviews I saw were simply folks who did not know how to wade through academic writing Maybe I was right but they were not wrongFor the record I made it halfway Wanted to give up about 15 20% in but kept at it80% of the text is utter bullshit 20% makes sense but then he ruins it by tying it back in to the other crap And he writes of photographers as if he has never been one It is all thought experiment BS He has no idea what goes on in the mind of Atget or Weston or Winogrand orDo not waste your time This was even ridiculous than Sontag on photography
