Overview

From conceptual art's use of the banal and "artless" snapshot to the carefully constructed tableaux of Jeff Wall, this book considers all the ways that today's artists engage with photography to make art.

This new edition brings the story of contemporary art photography up to date with a new chapter on artists who emphasize the physical and material properties of photography, who use photography as just one component in their pan-media practice, or who experiment with new modes of dissemination. Featuring established photographers such as Thomas Demand, Nan Goldin and Cindy Sherman alongside a younger generation including Florian Maier-Aichen, Anne Collier and Walead Beshty, The Photograph as Contemporary Art points to the durability, diversity and energy of art photography in the twenty-first century.

    This is an excellent book on Contemporary Photographic artist working primarily with color images. It provides a large array of small snipits of information on numerous artists, which are easily researched via the internet or your local library. A good book for any serious photographer, art historian or for that person who would like to understand photography more fully.
