Art Photography Now Summary

Art Photography Now by Susan Bright

This revised and expanded edition of Art Photography Now builds on the hugely successful first edition (2005), which traced the developments in art photography since the mid-nineteenth century and profiled world-famous artists such as Sophie Calle, Nan Goldin and Martin Parr. The book retains its seven themed sections - Portrait, Landscape, Narrative, Object, Fashion, Document, and City - each of which begins with an introduction followed by the work of individual photographers featured in sequence. Each photographer's work is accompanied by the author's commentary and quotes from the artist, offering valuable insights into the making and meaning of the images. New and recent work by established artists such as Candida Hoefer, Gabriel Orozco and Wolfgang Tillmans has been added, bringing the book up to date and making it as definitive and authoritative as when it first appeared. A new final chapter, Transitions, showcases work by today's emerging artists such as Viviane Sassen, LaToya Ruby Frazier and Leigh Ledare. It explains how art photography has grown and adapted to the burgeoning international interest in photography during the first decade of the twenty first century, as well as dramatic and fast-paced technological change.
