magda stanova's 'in the shadow of photography' is a visual essay about the medium. as she explains it "consists of three main issues: searching for the specifics of phototography; investigating the relationship between art and photography; and examining how the behavior and thinking of people has changed since the invention of photography. it consists of 28 pieces: drawings, collages, photographs, texts, animation and objects." see more here. and magda's site is here.
