HENRI VAN LIER »PHILOSOPHY OF PHOTOGRAPHY« – selected by PEETER LINNAP

»A highly original phenomenological (anthropogenical, as the author would put it) INTEGRATED treatment of photography that makes it possible to compare this book with Vilem Flusser’s work, which was probably the last of its kind. “Essentialist” views on the medium are organically amalgamated here with those of the “functionalist” ones, that is, to be honest, very rare. This book indicates that we should take more care to translate books from other languages into English, indeed to enrich the so far English-language dominated book world on the history and theory of photography.«
