Still Moving: Between Cinema and Photography

Duke University Press
2008

“The works in this important book have been chosen for their ability to further existing discourses on the ways in which we view photographic and filmed images. I found it one of the most engaging and thought-provoking collections I have read for some time.”—Peter C. Pugsley, Media International Australia

“[T]he project is an ambitious one that seeks to reorient the direction of film studies in a way that can escape from a strict temporal linearity. . . . This is a very contemporary book that effectively opens up fresh and rich directions for understandings of the moving image, and it will appeal to a broad range of readers interested in film studies, art history, and photography.”—Adam Dodd, M/C Review

“[T]heoretically incisive and up-to-the-minute. . .”—Tamara Trodd, History of Photography

"The editors of Still Moving aim to make the theoretical and methodological confusion that they diagnose into something productive. As part of this, it is important to them to situate Art History within this discourse. . . . This book aims to provoke inquiry into the differences between the two approaches of film and photography as well as between their explicit and implicit media identities in order to develop questions that will make new scholarly approaches possible." —Nina Lindemeyer, Sehepunkte (translated from the German)
