'comprehensive, authoritative and international...an important book in an age when society faces the increasingly heavy social responsibilities of photography, and visual communication more broadly' - Wallpaper
A survey of the 50 most significant photographers working today, with high-quality reproductions of their work, commentary and interviews
In the last century, photography was always novel. Now, it feels like our world is over-saturated with images. In the 21st century, what can photography do that is new? This extensively illustrated survey answers that question, presenting fifty photographers from around the world who are defining photography today.
Their styles, formats, and interpretations of the medium vary widely, but in each case, the work featured in this book represents photography doing what it has always done best: finding new ways to tell stories, and new stories to tell. Artists featured include Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Hassan Hajjaj, Andreas Gursky, Juno Calypso, Ryan McGinley, Zanele Muholi, Shirin Neshat, Catherine Opie, Martin Parr, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Juergen Teller.
