Garry Winogrand—along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander—was one of the most important photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers. Award-winning writer Geoff Dyer has admired Winogrand’s work for many years. Modeled on John Szarkowski’s classic book Atget, The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand is a masterfully curated selection of one hundred photographs from the Winogrand archive at the Center for Creative Photography, with each image accompanied by an original essay. Dyer takes the viewer/reader on a wildly original journey through both iconic and unseen images from the archive, including eighteen previously unpublished color photographs. The book encompasses most of Winogrand’s themes and subjects and remains broadly faithful to the chronological and geographical facts of his life, but Dyer’s responses to the photographs are unorthodox, eye-opening, and often hilarious. This inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text, itself offers what Dyer claims for Winogrand’s photography—an education in seeing.

A Telegraph and Evening Standard Book of the Year From the acclaimed writer and critic Geoff Dyer, an extremely funny scene-by-scene analysis of Where Eagles Dare - published as the film reaches its 50th anniversary A thrilling Alpine adventure starring a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a coolly anachronistic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. 'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy' is Geoff Dyer's tribute to the film he has loved since childhood: an analysis taking us from its snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax. For those who have not even seen Where Eagles Dare, this book is a comic tour-de-force of criticism. But for the film's legions of fans, whose hearts will always belong to Ron Goodwin's theme tune, it will be the fulfilment of a dream. 'Geoff Dyer's funniest book yet. Who else would work in Martha Gellhorn on the first page of a book on the film Where Eagles Dare?' Michael Ondaatje 'One of our greatest living critics, not of the arts but of life itself, and one of our most original writers' Kathryn Schulz, New York Magazine

PHOTOGRAPHY AND PHILOSOPHY ESSAYS ON THE PENCIL OF NATURE "Many of the essays are well written and indeed groundbreaking...Given its overall depth, the anthology is worth reading by any critic, curator or student of the arts."-Prefix Photo "How does anyone accept or deny 'reality' in photographic excursions? This is the central issue in this extraordinary compilation of 13 essays by contemporary philosophers who argue back and forth (in editor Walden's clever arrangement) so that readers must engage their own minds within the constantly conflicting (theoretical and personal) propositions/explanations. This is a rich, provocative, intelligent, challenging, and important compilation. Highly recommended."-Choice "Required reading for anyone interested in analytic philosophy of photography, Scott Walden's collection includes essays by most of the major writers in this area. The combination of classic pieces with newly commissioned work makes this both a useful reference book and a stimulating contribution to ongoing debates about photographic representation.-Nigel Warburton, The Open University Seeing is believing or is it? In an era of digital-imaging technology, can photographs still be considered truthful or realistic? Photography and Philosophy takes an up-to-date look at the issues of photographic truth, objectivity, and realism. It tests the limits on what can ethically be done with a camera and examines the fundamental differences between photographic and non-photographic artwork. Unlike the numerous texts devoted to the subject of Film Theory, this collection contains essays specifically about the art form of Still Photography and the broader theoretical questions it raises. Written by contemporary philosophers in a thorough and engaging manner, it is an excellent resource for students studying aesthetics or fine arts and photography.

Through postcolonial studies, indigenous perspectives are finally being heard, challenging various Western views of the world. However, these challenges are often made in the same moralizing voice as the original colonizations were justified. In keeping with the moralizing-resistant perspectives of Foucault, Benjamin and Derrida the "Politics of Moralizing" issues a warning about the risks of speaking, writing and thinking in a manner too confident about you own judgments. Can a clear line be drawn between dogmatism and simple certainty and indignation?

Rage Against The LightPlace: Sydney CBD. Or a city anywhere. Time: Mostly daytime yet feels like night.Era: Early 21st century. Mood: Dark but hopeful.Light: Dramatic. Sydney is a city in the midst of a development boom. Skyscrapers. Cranes. Man-made environment. Concrete. Few trees. Mirrored surfaces. Windows magnifying light. Consumer advertising expressing people's desires. Impersonal at heart.There are signs of life amid the cold abstractions of architecture. People scurry about being literally exposed by light. They are struck by shafts between buildings like insects coming out for food. Solitary male figures appear as different identities. A man in a suit, dragging on a cigarette is lost in thought.Street photography is a genre with a long history (Garry Winogrand, Daido Moriyama, Trent Parke). The CBD is a favorite haunt. Some photographers seek out people or emphasize a sense of isolation in the crowd. Others evoke a haunting mood empty of human presence. Markus Andersen does both, loving the tradition of black and white (high contrast), square format and abstraction. With very deliberate cropping and enterprising juxtapositions he reveals his skill for graphic design. He aligns the elements of people and place to make a wryly humourous visual haiku. The Leunig of photography.Markus Andersen's photographs describe an experience familiar to us. It is exciting and full of promise to go to the CBD and yet it can leave us feeling empty. We go home only temporarily satiated. This essay is rich with worldly wisdom. There is satisfaction in the vision shared. It celebrates the humanity of the self and its endless creative ability to interpret. This is the role of the artist. It casts light on our experience by speaking from the heart. Markus Anderson sheds light on our love of life and our love of light.
