Abstract

"This introduction to visual culture explores the ways we use and understand images.

"Including over 180 images, this interdisciplinary and beautifully designed book aims to be a comprehensive introduction for anyone interested in images, and the key text for courses across a range of disciplines including media and film studies, art history, photography, and communication."--Jacket
