We have loaded this issue, and the next, with information on reading photographs. The reason for concentrating on the obvious aspect is quite simple; few know how to look at a photograph. And who ever takes time to contemplate one? Present reader excepted?

WHAT IS MEANT BY "READING" PHOTOGRAPHS
[no value]

[no value]
In a very limited way, any time a person looks at a photograph long enough to identify the subject he is reading that picture. Or, to put it another way, any photograph that communicates does so because a person is reading it. This kind of reading can be an intellectual effort, an intuitive one, or any mixture of both.

Beaumont Newhall
The First Annual Conference on Photojournalism, jointly sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Photographers and the University of Miami, was one of the most stimulating "short courses" which I have attended. From May 6-8, 1957, leading magazine photographers and picture editors gathered for lively discussions on the place of photography today, on the relationship of the photographer to the editor, and the type of photograph which is most effective for magazines.

CLARENCE LAUGHLIN
The group of photographs called POEMS OF DESOLATION, from which this picture came, was started in 1939 and still continues. The group represents an attempt to project the symbolic reality of our time. The means to do this is a complex integration of human figures (nearly always depersonalized), carefully selected backgrounds, and specifically chosen objects.

Gyorgy Kepes / THE NEW LANDSCAPE in Art and Science

The theme of THE NEW LANDSCAPE is square in the center of the cultural lag between the advances of science and the people as a whole. In this sense the theme is simple and directed at a pressing problem. In brief the Kepes aim is this: the natural world has always been common to all men; lately the scientists have enlarged our knowledge of it so much that the natural world has become uncommon to most men.

An unconventional book is Ansel Adams’ ARTIFICIAL LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY. And bless him for continuing to be unconventional in this #5 of the Basic Photo Series. As he says in the introduction, "the entire subject of artificial lighting has been molded into rigid patterns of procedure, mechanics and equipment."
