Photography is not only, as Hubert Damis noted, an art in which light produces its own metaphor,". It also has a story filled with images and metaphors. The history of photography, unlike that of the other technical inventions, is characterized by the fact that it has adopted and produced numerous metaphors, equally determining the photographic theory and practice. The power of photography to transform reality is also due to metaphorical play.
This "Album of Photographic Metaphors" attempts to capture the history of photography in images. Every article in this photographic-metaphorical dictionary - which can be read in itself - has photographs along with brief historical or theoretical insights, trying to sketch the relevant metaphor of photography; a brief bibliographic reference to the literature used is also exposed.
The book invites the reader to become aware of the history of photography as a history of the images that have shaped and continue to shape not only our imagination but also the image of reality.
