Publisher's Description

In the first book devoted to representations of Jesus Christ in contemporary photography, Nathalie Dietschy presents a rich range of images from the 1980s to the present day. Works by acclaimed artists such as Andres Serrano, Catherine Opie, Wang Qingsong, Joan Fontcuberta, Vanessa Beecroft, David LaChapelle, Renee Cox, and Bettina Rheims offer fresh—and sometimes provocative—depictions of Christ, embodied by a woman, for example, or a person of color, addressing issues from race to sexuality to gender. Stunningly illustrated throughout, The Figure of Christ in Contemporary Photography guides the reader through these alternative representations that often challenge and renew tradition, analyzing the complex social, political, and cultural issues that the photographs bring to light.
