With 25 richly illustrated essays that cover issues such as journalism, teaching, advertisement and the museum, L'Écrivain vu par la photographie. Formes, usages, enjeux opens new perspectives on the ways in which writers are depicted through photography. The book offers an historical, philosophical as well as sociological study of the phenomenon, and explores how photography has continuously modified the relationship between readers and writers from the mid-19th century to this day.
