Summary/Abstract: This book is an attempt at a new interpretation of texts by classical authors who write about photography as a medium, a way of recording the world, a tool of artistic creation and epistemological machinery. In addition to these re-interpreted authors, the book also includes chapters devoted to authors who propose new recognition of the phenomenon of photography, especially in the context of the expansion of new visual media and reflections on its “inhuman” dimension. A dozen chapters in the style of a scientific essay – which for the author means combining the accessibility of the argument without resigning from in-depth analysis and interpretation – is intended to present the diversity of looking at photography.
