Photo provocations : thinking in, with, and about photographs

"The evolving field of visual literacy is becoming more accepted in the library world. Exploring the topic with mere words and images on a printed page limits the reader's ability to fully understand its importance and implication for libraries. But introduce a compact disc filled with fascinating photographs, and the text, as well as the topic, becomes a lively, sensory exercise, altering how we view and interpret visual objects, whether man-made or natural. The accompanying CD of Photo Provocations: Thinking in, with, and about Photographs contains more than 300 color photographs and illustrations to help us break out of the linear mode and see the world differently. It's a wild ride through the language of images, leaving the reader/viewer definitely better informed about how to communicate visually and eager to learn more. Faculty working in information studies and education or those involved in image creation, organization, management, interpretation, and visual design will especially enjoy developing their visual language skills with the help of O'Connor and Wyatt."--Jacket
