Publisher's Description

Extensively illustrated, this comprehensive group exhibition catalog takes Barthes’s notion of the “intractable reality” of the photograph as the starting point for an examination of the aesthetic, ethical, performative and political in documentary photography. Artists featured are Robert Adams, Derek Bennett, Joachim Brohm, David Goldblatt, Candida Höfer, Miyako Ishiuchi, Ute Klophaus, Karl C. Kugel, Boris Mikhailov, Gabriele and Helmut Nothhelfer, Thomas Ruff and Raghubir Singh. Essays presenting critical questions in the debate on the image as document are discussed by curator Barbara Engelbach, Jennifer Crowley, Lena Fritsch, Laszlo Glozer, Shanay Jhaveri, Jasmina Merz, Andreas Prinzing and Inka Schube, as well as a comprehensive bibliography.

Condition: Belly band torn and not intact (missing rear panel), otherwise Fine.
