Reviews

"In this richly illustrated book, Helen Caple admirably combines professional know-how, analytical finesse, and theoretical insight." - Theo van Leeuwen, University of Southern Denmark

"[Caple's] knowledge base and experience make for some interesting research." - CHOICE

"By presenting a systematic analysis of press photographs and providing a set of useful tools for their interpretation, Photojournalism: A Social Semiotic Approach successfully redresses the imbalance between words and images in news discourse studies, and its insightful account of text image relations, in particular, constitutes a timely and valuable contribution to the area of multimodal discourse analysis." - Discourse & Communication
