One thought on “Photographs Objects Histories

  1. Traci

    This book has a fantastic perspective on photographs as objects, and how the materiality of images spans across several different categories that could never be contained as merely flat images.

  2. Dan Gorman

    Really interesting and thought provoking essays about photographs and their meaning when considered as historical artifacts.
