Walter Benjamin s 1931 essay A Short History of Photography is a landmark in the understanding and criticism of the medium, offering surprising new takes on such photographic pioneers as David Octavius Hill and Nicephore Niepce and their aesthetic and technical achievements. On Photography presents a new translation of that essay along with a number of other writings by Benjamin, some of them presented in English for the first time. Translator and editor Esther Leslie sets Benjamin s work in context with prefaces to each piece and contributes a substantial introduction that considers Benjamin s engagement with photography in all its forms, including early commercial studio photography, the uses of photography in science, and much more."
