Walter Benjamin's 1931 essay 'A Short History of Photography' is a landmark in the understanding and criticism of the medium, offering surprising new takes on such photographic pioneers as David Octavius Hill and Nicephore Niepce and their aesthetic and technical achievements. This book presents a new translation of that essay along with a number of other writings by Benjamin, some of them presented in English for the first time.
