Photography, Place, Environment

About the Series

Photography, Place, Environment publishes original scholarship and critical thinking exploring ways in which photography contributes to, or challenges, narratives relating to geography, environment, landscape and place, historically and now.

International in scope, and innovatory in placing imagery as both the object and the method of enquiry, the series includes single-authored and edited volumes by new scholars as well as established names in the field. By critiquing relationships between land, aesthetics, culture and photography, the books in this series also foster debates on photographic methodologies, theory and practices.
