Discover Your Self Through Photography: A Creative Workbook for Amateur & Professional

By Ralph Hattersley 1971

Soft cover in fairly good condition though not perfect. For someone interested in photography it does help to question assumptions.

Ralph Hattersley was a long time, highly respected Professor of Photography at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Jeff Cosloy , Jun 23, 2005; 01:51 p.m. I recently landed a copy of this 1971 book by Ralph Hattersley. His idea is that the aim of the process of photography can be one of self-discovery, rather than one of documentation or creativity. His ideas are digested from Jung, Gurdjeiff, and the broad outlines of Christianity. Indeed, he characterizes the process as religious in nature. This may be off-putting, but if you've ever 'wondered...what's going on...down under' (apologies to CSN) there are concise descriptions of how, as we attempt to do one thing, we're often doing another that we can't perceive. You will not get much from this book unless you are willing to admit that your everyday identity and actions are just the tip of the iceberg. And that that tip firmly believes that it is the whole iceberg. Not! Enough metaphors. If you are drawn to photography, or any other process like it, and can't really pin down why, this book could be an eye-opener. If you deplore navel-gazing, well its just not for you.

Top Customer Reviews 4.0 out of 5 stars Why we do what we do with a camera By alan on March 16, 2015

This is an old book..but an almost unique one. Hattersley takes the idea of photography as self-expression one step further to self-discovery, and makes a very good case for examining what you photograph to dig a little deeper into why you photograph what your photograph. At a cynical reading, it's 1960's pop psychology (that's and the so-so reproductive qualities of the photos are why I didn't give it the full five star rating) but he's definitely onto something: something that rewards careful study. If you were to be planning a course on why people photograph, this plus Robert Adams book would be great places to start.
