There are many books about photo technics and photographic know-how. Photography was born together with a very specific kind of literature that combines in equal manner subjectivity and objectivity. In those handbooks is often explained how to use a technical device but also most of them guide us through the complicated paths of composition, color adjustment and artistic perception. Photography might be one of the best examples of what the 20th century wanted to be – an emotional technical society.
