Prospect. Photography in Contemporary Art

Prospect: Photography In Contemporary Art offers an emphasis upon the many diverse applications of photography as a form of artistic expression by examining the medium’s perceptual possibilities as well as a variety of both critical and playful approaches to them. Major themes include people and the environment, landscapes, cities; technology and civilization; communication – staged reality; cameraless photography; new approaches to historical photography; photography as fiction; digital processing; text and (or in lieu of) photography; self-presentation and portraits; installations, objects and large formats. Prospect is a massive undertaking that successfully achieves its intent — and the result is a highly recommended addition to all photography and artbook collections. — Midwest Book Review
