Art and Photography Reviews

"Presented thematically, with succinct texts that are both readable and informative, the book meets both academic and general needs, without ever compromising the images in display."-Pictured

"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 by Barthes and Baudrillard into the bargain. It's a timely survey that aspires to be the document of record for the most exciting, universal and accessible art form we've got."-i-D

"Art and Photography... charts the acceptance of photography as an art form. Originally considered a mechanical process, photography is now one of the most widely practiced arts. 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

"Phaidon's Themes and Movements series seeks to provide the late 20th-century art history books of the future."-Art Monthly
