Book Synopsis Visual Culture by : Alexis L. Boylan

Download or read book Visual Culture written by Alexis L. Boylan and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2020-08-11 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As if John Berger's Ways of Seeing was re-written for the 21st century, Alexis L. Boylan crafts a guide for navigating the complexities of visual culture in this concise introduction. The visual surrounds us, some of it invited, most of it not. In this visual environment, everything we see--art, color, the moon, a skyscraper, a stop sign, a political poster, rising sea levels, a photograph of Kim Kardashian West--somehow becomes legible, normalized, accessible. How does this happen? How do we live and move in our visual environments? This volume offers a guide for navigating the complexities of visual culture, outlining strategies for thinking about what it means to look and see--and what is at stake in doing so.
