Photographers & Movies in Susan Sontag’s On Photography

On Photography is a collection of 6 essays written by Susan Sontag published in the year 1973.

Ever since its publication, it remains a must read for any one who is into the practice of photography — both professional and hobbyist.

The book — apart from its detailed assessment of the craft and art of photography — has a treasure trove of references to movies, books and a whole lot of photographers. This makes the book a great starting point for study and research.

Collected below are the list of movies and photographers discussed by the author in this book.
