'How can we write the histories of photography? How should art hitory and visual studies integrate the special technical and aesthetic challenges posed by the medium and respond to the intense interest it has provoked inthe art world in recent years? In this timely volume, fifteen leading scholars discuss the discipline, practice, historiography, and study of photography, from William Henry For Talbot to Vik Muniz, and reflect on the status of photography today. In addition, the book features works by important contemporary artists that probe and illustrate these same issues, together offering new perspectives on the field and what photography means to us in the early twenty-first century.'
