Liz Wells is a Principal Lecturer in Media Arts in the Faculty of Arts and Education, University of Plymouth. She is editor of The Photography Reader (2002), published by Routledge.Review:
"A brilliantly designed book. It provides a much-needed conceptual perspective, so lacking in other histories of photography, and with the new material on photojournalism is even stronger."
-Ulrich Keller, University of California at Santa Barbara
"'The new edition changes are extremely timely and will enhance its usefulness as a textbook and teaching resource. Chapter introductions have been expanded, and in many cases given a broader and more sophisticated intellectual content. Recent developments in the field of photographic practice and theory are explored and the implications followed through in relation to the whole text... The international perspective underpinning the text has been broadened ... the expanded glossary provides and extremely useful resource in this complex interdisciplinary field.'
-Joanna Lowry, Reader in Visual Theory/Media Arts, Kent Institute of Art and Design.
