MARKETS IN FASHIONA Phenomenological Approach | Patrik AspersPatrik Aspers is a researcher in Sociology at Stockholm University and has published several articles in the field of eco- nomic sociology.In this volume the author is taking the reader on a tour in the world of fashion photo-graphy. By combining the actors' voices with a theoretical approach he unveils the logic of this world. He shows how photographers gain their identities in the market and how markets are constructed at the intersection of economy and art. With the theory the author develops, which is centered on status, identity, and style, one may also approach other aesthetic markets."Patrik Aspers pulls you inside the art worlds of fashion photography with accounts of speech as vivid as their photos. Yet he also teases out market and organization rationalities binding these socially constructed worlds. The appendix is a deft introduction to phenomenology, of which his project is an instantiation. Anyone interested in borders will find ideas here, about small countries in big worlds as well as about several specialized arts budding off photography which Aspers clearly loves."Harrison C.
