Critical Photography series

Since 1986, Intellect has provided a vital space for widening critical debate in new and emerging subjects. As a leading academic publisher in the fields of creative practice and popular culture, Intellect has a strong list of visual culture and contemporary art focussed publications. We aim to offer a platform for photographers, writers and creative artists to present and critically reflect on their work and to produce original, adventurous projects.

Critical Photography seeks to encourage visual and textual reflection on/with contemporary photography; to marry photographic work and critical texts, representing a balance between the two forms. The series is at the forefront in expanding the notion of critical debate: each book investigates a theoretical issue via two systems of representation, placing them at equal level. Neither text that 'explains' pictures nor photography that 'illustrates' text, the series addresses aspects of our being and becoming in a thought-provoking and aesthetically stunning form and content.

We are interested to receive proposals both in photography and critical writing for the series. To send a proposal for a volume in the series, please download a questionnaire or contact For further information, contact the series editor Alfredo Cramerotti (
