Art and Photography

Overview

On its invention, the photograph was considered a purely mechanical, 'artless' object which could not belong among the fine arts.

Overview

On its invention, the photograph was considered a purely mechanical, 'artless' object which could not belong among the fine arts. Despite its increasing use by the century's most significant artists, only since the late 1960s have art museums gradually begun to exhibit and acquire the photograph as an artwork. Today, though it took the whole of the last century for it to acquire its status, photography is art's pre-eminent medium. Art And Photography is the first book of its kind to survey the major presence of photography in artistic practice from the 1960s onwards. It is an authoritative and wide ranging survey, including texts by theorists Jean Baudrillard and Roland Barthes, and artists Victor Burgin and Jeff Wall. International artists of the last four decades are each represented in the book by a significant work or series, accompanied by a lucid explanatory text. Art And Photography is an essential reference work for students, professionals and all readers interested in photography and media.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Imagine the best group show of photographers you've ever seen. Now imagine it's a book. Campany skillfully curates the leading lights of post-1960 into a thematically arranged form with tempting essays from Barthes and Baudrillard into the bargain. It's timely survey that aspires to be the document of record for the most exciting, universal and accessible art form we've got."- i-D

"Exploring developments from the Sixties to the present day, this beautiful book covers every major school, style and name, and includes work by the likes of Jeff Wall, Andreas Gursky and Gillian Wearing. The perfect family album."- VOGUE
