At a critical point in the development of photography, this book offers an engaging, detailed and far-reaching examination of the key issues that are defining contemporary photographic culture. Photography Reframed addresses the impact of radical technological, social and political change across a diverse set of photographic territories: the ontology of photography; the impact of mass photographic practice; the public display of intimate life; the current state of documentary, and the political possibilities of photographic culture. These lively, accessible essays by some of the best writers in photography together go deep into the most up-to-date frameworks for analysing and understanding photographic culture and shedding light on its histories. Photography Reframed is a vital road map for anyone interested in what photography has been, what it has become, and where it is going.

'Featuring some of the world's most interesting writers on photography, this anthology provides a series of thematic glimpses into the now-infinite depths of our contemporary photographic world. Short and pithy, these essays remind us that a grasp of that world is vital to our present and future literacy. Recommended for all who have an interest in photography and its potentials.' - Geoffrey Batchen, Professor of the History of Photography & Contemporary Art, University of New York Graduate Center, author, Burning with Desire: The Conception of Photography, `Photography as we understood it only a decade ago has changed beyond all recognition. Photography Reframed draws on the expertise of a new generation of theorists and artists to explore photography at the interesting juncture at which we find ourselves. It will prove invaluable for all those interested in how the medium's role and uses are being reimagined in the twenty-first century. - Brett Rodgers, Director, The Photographers' Gallery, London, `Photography Reframed is at its best a quantum-like unmasking of certitudes from the last century as well as from our own precarious moment. Its diverse reflections, from the Grin of Schroedinger's Cat to Escaping the Panopticon and Hating Habermas , coalesce into a timely primer for an old/new form of delinquency: the thoughtful conversation.' - Fred Ritchin, Dean Emeritus, International Centre for Photography, New York.
