    DescriptionWhile innumerable words have been written about individual paintings, there have been few attempts at extended analysis of a singular photographic image. This selection of essays addresses this startling omission by examining in depth key images from a history of photography dating from 1835 to the present. The selected images are drawn from documentary as well as fine art practice, and also allude to the worlds of fashion and film, highlighting the border disputes that are key to all discourses around art and photography. Works include: William Henry Fox Talbot's Latticed Window, 1835; Julia Margaret Cameron's Iago, Study of an Italian, 1867; Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp's Dust Breeding, 1920; Nan Goldin's The Hug, 1980; and Jeff Wall's View from an Apartment, 2005.
