From conceptual arts 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.
