Visual Culture by Richard Howells

Visual culture

This comprehensive, sophisticated and eminently readable book is an analysis of what everyone sees but almost no one notices. It explores key ideas, key questions and key texts. The breadth of this book, accessibility and usefulness of this book for study is imperative. I certainly found it highly readable, deeply informative and richly illuminating. It covers all the analysis of all visual text –from drawings, to paintings, photographs, films, adverts etc. It also includes different theoretical approaches, including Iconology, form and history, ideology, semiotics and hermeneutics. It is in-depth about the relationship between visual culture and reality, by exploring how texts communicate.

Writers use grammatical units, a cornucopia of grammatical devices for the written word. We become visually illiterate is we don’t read the ‘signs’ of visual imagery. This book looks at how meaning can be found with introspection, and how we ‘read’ something. It looks at iconic people such as Panofsky when studying iconology.

Anyone studying English literature, writing and media studies should definitely add this book to their reading lists, as it is illuminating and informative for a contemporary culture.

This is a book about how to read visual images: from fine art to photography, film, television and new media. It explores how meaning is communicated by the wide variety of texts that inhabit our increasingly visual world. But, rather than simply providing set meanings to individual images, Visual Culture teaches readers how to interpret visual texts with their own eyes. While the first part of the book takes readers through differing theoretical approaches to visual analysis, the second part shifts to a medium-based analysis, connected by an underlying theme about the complex relationship between visual culture and reality. Howells and Negreiros draw together seemingly diverse methodologies, while ultimately arguing for a polysemic approach to visual analysis. The third edition of this popular book contains over fifty illustrations, for the first time in colour. Included in the revised text is a new section on images of power, fear and seduction, a new segment on video games, as well as fresh material on taste and judgement.
