Photography: A Middle-Brow Art.

Text by Pierre Bourdieu. Translated by Shaun Whiteside.
Stanford University Press, Stanford, 1990. 218 pp., 10 illustrations, 6x9¼".

The everyday practice of photography by amateur photographers may seem to be a personal and spontaneous activity. But France's leading sociologist and cultural theorist shows that few cultural activities are more consistently structured and systematic than photography. This book of Pierre Bourdieu's essays is greatly rewarding for those who are seriously interested in photography, in its incisive analysis of the ways in which people use their cameras and of the manner in which these uses are socially ingrained.
