Introduction to Photography. Author: by Dawn Ades. Title: An Introduction to Photography & Surrealism.

Traditional criticism has viewed Surrealist photography as a pale imitation of authentic Surrealist work. L' Amour fou is the first book to study the crucial role photography did in fact play in the Surrealist movement. The assumption has been that photography, a "realistic" medium, is fundamentally incompatible with a cause devoted to the wildly subjective, the world of dreams, and the unconscious. It shows how photographers enlisted into the service of "subjective" Surrealism their medium's very claim to "objective" reality.

This book details the surrealist engagement with major themes in the intellectual history of the twentieth century. It draws together essays from the whole history of surrealism to illustrate the tenacity and consistency with which the surrealists treated themes of psychological reality and the construction of identity, cultural communication, freedom and poetry. It also serves as an introduction to major writers in surrealism whose work is largely unknown to English readers, such as Georges Henein, Rene Alleau, Gerard Legrand and Annie Le Brun.
