Launched in the spring of 1995, the original version of this newsletter, C: the Speed of Light, established A. D. Coleman's presence on the Web, simultaneously making him the first photography critic and historian to explore this new communication technology. Now reconfigured as a blog, it will appear henceforth under its new title, Photocritic International. You can access its latest posts at any time by going directly to

This long-running online communiqué on photography and related matters — widely read by teachers, students, collectors, and others in the field — frequently features complete texts of Coleman's essays and lectures. Excerpts from his numerous books, reviews of those works, and publication information on those titles and the books by others to which he has contributed, appear here as well.

Photocritic International also contains information about Coleman's seminars and workshops, notes on his recent and upcoming projects and activities, and other material useful to anyone with a serious interest in photography, contemporary art, and new digital technologies.
