The Pleasures of Good Photographs
Aperture, 2010/06/30 - 255 ページ
The Pleasures of Good Photographs is an intellectual and aesthetic excursion led by one of the field's eminent critics and popular writers. In this new volume of essays, Gerry Badger offers insight into some of his favorite images, artists, and themes, drawing upon nearly three decades of experience writing and thinking about photography.
With deep discernment and a readable mixture of scholarly finesse and wit, Badger describes the meaning of work by dozens of photographers, from Eugene Atget and Dorothea Lange to Martin Parr, Luc Delahaye, Susan Lipper, and Paul Graham. Among the broader topics discussed are the photobook, where Badger believes "photography sings its loudest and most complex song," and Photoshop's impact on art-making. An interlude at the heart of the book pairs the author's evocative meditations with more than a dozen "pathway" images.
The Pleasures of Good Photographs showcases primarily new essays, with a couple of classics thrown in for good measure, making it an important addition to the canon of photographic writing.
A photography critic for nearly thirty years, Gerry Badger is himself a photographer, as well as an architect and curator. He has written for dozens of periodicals and his previous books include The Photobook: A History, Volumes I and II, coauthored with Martin Parr, and The Genius of Photography: How Photography Has Changed Our Lives, a companion volume to the BBC television series. Badger lives in London.
