Good News: The Routledge Companion to Photography and Visual Culture is now available in Chinese!
Thanks to the great work of He Yining, Liu Zhangbolong, and Wei Ran, this book, which was published originally in 2018, was translated into Chinese and published by Posts & Telecom Press. The book comprises a range of essays and interviews by experts and scholars from across the globe. It also examines the medium’s history, its central issues and emerging trends, and its much-discussed future. The collected essays and interviews explore the current debates surrounding the photograph as object, art, document, propaganda, truth, selling tool, and universal language; the perception of photography archives as burdens, rather than treasures; the continual technological development reshaping the field; photography as a tool of representation and control, and more.
