What are young photographers up to at the outset of the 21st century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on or reject tradition? Are they busy in the darkroom or the computer lab – or both? reGeneration sets out to discover answers to these intriguing questions, previewing the work of fifty photographers who, if they live up to their promise, seem set to become the finest photographers of the future. This remarkable book, the biggest and most enterprising survey of its kind, showcases the creativity, ingenuity and inspiration of these up-and-coming photographic artists in over 200 superb images. Curators at the world-renowned Musee de l’Elysee in Lausanne selected the photographers from hundreds of candidates submitted by more than sixty of the world’s top photography schools. The curators’ choice was made with one key question in mind: is the photographer likely to be known in twenty years’ time? The results show that, as the new century builds momentum, the art of photography is alive and well, and that photographers of extraordinary talent are on their way to making their mark. This is a rare and unique opportunity to preview their work.
