A good picture can be judged by pure aesthetics, but ‘good’ is always defined by social and cultural significance; whether one can read the meaning of a picture depends on how well the social and cultural contexts are analyzed, reviewed and written on, thus read. This book is compiled of Kuo Lihsin’s commentaries on photography in the past 15 years, including 30 new articles written after Writing on Photography, in which some have been published in Voice of Photography. It covers controversial issues, art works and writings regarding photography. Kuo looks into the phenomena of production, criticism and culture of the past decade, and raise acute questions and criticisms.
