When Susan Sontag published the first of this series of essays in 1973, her view of photography was ground-breaking. Her initial intention to address a number of aesthetic and moral issues presented by the ubiquity of images gradually developed into a wide-ranging and incisive theory on the meaning, function, use, technique and history of photography, as well as its connection with other art forms and its political impact.
Sontag was convinced that photographs teach us a visual code, one that has a clear ethical dimension. She bequeathed us essays which, read today, more than 40 years after they were written, give us profound insights into the true significance of the image in contemporary culture and society.
