Conflicting Images (Hardcover)

Conflicting Images Cover Image


Unlike most historical examinations of war reporting, which centre the evolving role of the war correspondent, this book reverses the emphasis in order to bring the photojournalist's contribution to the fore, providing an evaluative appraisal of photojournalism as an important area of inquiry in its own right. Stuart Allan explores a number of pressing questions facing photojournalists committed to conveying conflict. Placing these questions in historical context demonstrates how efforts to rethink the future of photojournalism in a digital age can benefit from a close and careful consideration of war photography's origins, early development and gradual transformation over the years.
