Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume provides an authoritative overview of photography's place in recent art history, contextualised by artists' statements and interviews, and texts by leading critics, writers and theorists of the late 20th century. 250 photos.

Book News Annotation:

This oversize book (10.25x11.25<">) is not a restful read. There's visual and intellectual stimulation on every page: images from the fulminating late 1960s to the present, and text and captions in a variety of typefaces (some so big, it hurts). In all, this volume presents 190 photos by 160 significant international artists—photographers who have explored and pushed the boundaries of the medium (and of our sensibilities). The images are accompanied by artist statements and interviews as well as reflections on photography by dozens of thinkers, including Roland Barthes, Jean Baudrillard, Clement Greenberg, Walter Benjamin, Andr<'e> Malraux, among others. Arrangement is chronological within some designated themes (e.g. memories, the urban and the everyday, the studio image). Providing the preface and the introductory survey material is editor David Campany, a writer and an artist himself who lectures in the history and theory of photography at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, Farnham, England.
