Photography Books 004

Hi!

This week’s offering is a little controversial.

I found this book fascinating because not only did it cover some photography history as it presented each photo, but it explained why it was controversial. This is helpful because many of these I wondered what all the fuss was about, and indeed in today’s society many of them would’t warrant a second glance for that reason. But it gives an insight into the cultural milieu at the time, which is also interesting. Art should push boundaries and there are some remarkable photos in this volume that do just that. If we don’t feel something we can’t question WHY we feel it, and art should make us feel and question why we feel it.
