This book is a quick pop-psychology review of how we see and understand photographs.
The takeaways from the book are that we see things through the filter of our own experience; that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye; and that viewers enjoy photographs with surprises. There is a section on how the tools of photography can be used to direct a viewer’s attention, although there is nothing here that is not discussed in most books about composition in more useful detail. There are also several interviews with experts that seem a little more complex, but are still relatively simplistic. The book is illustrated with photographs by both the author and a few of the photographic greats. The cover photograph by Martin Parr, which I had never seen, was one of the great photographic surprises.
If you are new to photography you may not have encountered these ideas, but older hands, who have tried to understand the psychology of photographs are likely to have encountered these ideas. It doesn’t take deep thought to realize that there are no frames around subjects in the real world.
The book is most useful in understanding photographic composition. For example, there is little discussion of exposure except as it effects the composition of an image. Still, when it came to turning the discussion into practical advice I wanted more depth. How can photographers use concepts like vantage point and shape to create a surprise in a photograph?
One ought to understand the concepts discussed if one hopes to be an exceptional photographer. On the other hand, if there had been more meat on the bone, the book would have made the ideas even more interesting and useful.
