Photography and Its Origins, published by Focal Press, reflects on the recently renewed interest on photography's beginnings, and includes speculation and examination of the first photographs recorded, proclamations of photography's death in the digital age, and reconsideration of who and what invented the photographic medium. Edited by Tanya Sheehan and Andres Zervigon, this book re-frames photographic history under critical and historiographical terms, and challenges the commonly accepted notions of how we've come to accept photographic history as we know it. The publication comprises 16 original essays, along with 32 color images, and showcases prominent and emerging voices in the field of photographic studies. Serving as a valuable resource to students and scholars of art history, visual and media studies, and the history of science and technology, the texts in this book cut across disciplines and methodologies in order to shed new light on old questions concerning photography's history.
