Photographers who use digital technologies as tools for creative expression are driving the most exciting and transformative developments in today's photography.
Digital photographic and imaging technologies are the most recent development in an art and science whose history is one of constant technological innovation. Using sophisticated software and scanners, artists are able to enhance or alter photographs, and create mesmerizing effects. Focusing exclusively on digital photography, Sylvia Wolf explores a medium that challenges our notions of the role of the artist and of an image's relationship to the real.
Taking readers from the earliest experiments in digital photography to the latest innovations, Wolf offers a historical perspective and points to future trends. The work of a global panoply of artists, including Ida Applebroog, Sheila Pree Bright, Peter Campus, Xing Danwen, Joan Fontcuberta, Tom Friedman, Andreas Gursky, Martina Lopez, Loretta Lux, Mary Mattingly, Wendy McMurdo, Andreas Müller-Pohle, Thomas Ruff, Lucas Samaras, and Jeff Wall, demonstrates how diverse and complex the field has become. This expert survey offers a riveting snapshot of a medium.
