An Introduction to Visual Culture, 2nd Edition

By Nicholas Mirzoeff

Tracing the history and theory of visual culture, from painting to the World Wide Web, An Introduction to Visual Culture asks how and why visual media have become so central to everyday life. Revised and updated, new features in the second edition include Key Image studies from Holbein's The Ambassadors, to Blade Runner and the Abu Ghraib atrocities; and a Key Words section in each chapter, discussing vital critical terms and the debates that surround them.
