Overview

A Museum of Modern Art Publication Philip-Lorca diCorcia's inventively staged and exquisitely crafted color photographs occupy a special place in contemporary art. Operating in the gap between postmodern fiction and documentary fact, between slick convention and fresh perception, they deliver a powerful emotional charge. The 55 colorplates in this book, dating from 1978 to 1994, trace the evolution of his compelling and influential body of work, which has been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe. The book begins with diCorcia's enigmatic domestic scenarios, whose protagonists are the photographer's family and friends, and continues with the ambitious series in which Hollywood drifters and hustlers are pictured as emblematic figures of contemporary America. His images of the energy and turmoil of big city streets reinvigorated a rich photographic tradition that had been dormant for nearly a generation. 55 photographs in full color, 10 1/2 x 9 1/2"
