Review quote

'This invigorating book reminds me of that moment in geological time when Earth shifted on its axis...Adjusting for proportions, Image Ethics fundamentally alters the world of visual imagery.' Journal of Communication, Autumn, 1989. 'The authors remind us frequently, and with dramatic illustrations, that it is not always easy to distinguih between truth and deception, between genuine commitment and manipulation... But the cumulative effect of reading through this book is to force the reader into a greater awareness of the moral responsibility which falls both upon those who produce and those who consume the images with which we are surrounded.' The Toronto Globe and Mail, February, 1989. `A provocative collection of thirteen essays on the taking and showing of pictures.' Columbia Journalism Review `Image Ethics looks almost exclusively at United States practice, supplemented by Brian Winston's lively essay on the tradition of the victim as subject in British documentaries of the 1930s. Image Ethics does a valuable service in reminding us that the focused object in the lens is a subject too.' Times Literary Supplementshow more
