really liked it

A very well written account of the impact of images, particularly violent images from war, and the way that such photographs have become part of culture (and the business of newspapers). Throughout the book, I was moved to tears without even seeing these images, simply by reading about them. Sontag clearly understands the subject and explains a lot about the history of war photographs and the multifarious perspectives about such images.
