"Ideas on photography" sets out to explain the practice of photography;
One - What photography can do; ideas for projects.
Two - How to do it; technical advice, how be creative, how to tell stories.
Three - To define what contemporary photography is.
Four - To challenge photographers to expand and conceptualise their own practices.
