Photography and War by Pippa Oldfield

£22.50

There are countless books on war photography, most of these focusing on dramatic images made by photojournalists in combat zones. Photography and War instead proposes a radically expanded notion of war photography, one that encompasses a far broader terrain of practices and viewpoints. Richly illustrated, with some photos published for the first time, this book offers an accessible and well-rounded introduction to photography’s perhaps most contested, complex and emotive subject. Pippa Oldfield is Head of Programme at Impressions Gallery.

 

“Essential reading.” — Sophie Wright, Global Cultural Director, Magnum Photos

Each title presents a striking collection of images and an engaging, accessible text that offers intriguing insights into a specific theme or subject.
