レビュー

Unusual for a book of photography, the reader may take away more from the text than from the images themselves. " --このテキストは、 ペーパーバック 版に関連付けられています。

A trip to 80 (good) art galleries in a single book 2006/5/8
投稿者 Chris Kitze - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
It is difficult to find good contemporary photography overviews -- typically, you could go to galleries or museums for several years or buy a stack of art photography books and spend days going through them -- assuming you had a strong Art background. This book offers a nice alternative and it is one of the best overviews of contemporary fine art photography available.

Aperture, a respected photography publishing house, has beautifully produced this handsome book with 80 of what they consider to be the best living and working art photographers. The selection is broad, encompasses many areas and is well organized into 7 sections from Portrait to City. Several works from each artist are presented along with a short description of an artist's Work from a curator's perspective. Even more valuable are quotations from each artist describing their Work from their perspective. This alone makes the book worth owning.

Photographers you might know; Cindy Sherman, Thomas Ruff, Gregory Crewdson, Jeff Wall, Uta Barth, Joel Sternfeld, Thomas Demand and many others are alongside people you have probably never heard of but should get to know. The coverage of the cinematic, self exploration/psychological, conceptual and to some extent digital influences presented here should be thought provoking. Clearly, the "digitalness" of photography as a medium and all that implies -- interaction and collaboration, manipulation and realism, and authenticity and authority -- is growing in importance and will no doubt be better covered in the future as those artists emerge.

There are only two omissions that would have been interesting to see included; artists such as Gerhard Richter, best known for his painting and who uses photography extensively -- and some of the newest up and comers, like Idris Khan. To be fair, those areas are rich enough to support separate books and you should not let this keep you from buying this book. Overall, this is an excellent way to quickly learn about contemporary photography and you will not be disappointed.

Much more than your usual photography exhibition 2005/12/5
投稿者 Midwest Book Review - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Photography not only shaped art in the last century, it dominated it - and what better to demonstrate and celebrate this domination than Susan Bright's Art Photography Now, which surveys eighty of the most important and influential contemporary artist-photographers working today. Seven sections are divided by photo type: portrait, landscape, fashion, etc., and each explores and contrasts methods used by artists in their genres. Not only are styles compared, but inspirations and different philosophical and artistic approaches shared. Much more than your usual photography exhibition, Art Photography Now seeks an explanation of the nature and purposes of contemporary art photographers.

2011 Edition Improved from the 2005 Edition, But Selections of Photographers and Photographs Are Not Optimal 2011/12/16
投稿者 ReviewerWhoPrefersToBeAnonymous - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
I compared this 2011 "Revised and Expanded Edition" with the first edition of 2005. As with the first edition, the stated goal of this edition is to "explore the diverse subjects, styles and methods of the leading practitioners" of art photography. After a 12-page Introduction, the book is divided into seven sections: Portrait, Landscape, Narrative, Object, Fashion, Document, and City. A three-page essay introduces each section, which covers about 10 photographers with 1-4 pages devoted to each photographer. In these 1-4 pages are photo(s), a paragraph by the author in ALL CAPS, and a quotation from the photographer up to a few paragraphs in length. The photographers given more than two pages are AES&F, Tina Barney, Gregory Crewdson, Katy Grannan, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Susan Meiselas, Richard Misrach, Allen Sekula, Hannah Starkey, Joel Sternfeld, Larry Sultan, and Jeff Wall.

The major differences between this edition and the first edition are: (1) it's published by Thames & Hudson, not Aperture; (2) it has 240 pages and 275 illustrations, as opposed to 224 pages and 261 illustrations; (3) it's paperback, not hardcover; (4) there are new selections of photos and/or new quotations for Gregory Crewdson, Bill Henson, Candida Höfer, Justine Kurland, Boris Mikhailov, Gabriel Orozco, Mario Sorrenti, Hannah Starkey, Wolfgang Tillmans, Hellen van Meene, and Jeff Wall; and (5) there is a new "Transitions" section (pages 218-231) with subsections "Photography About Photography," "Documentary Drive," and "New Directions." Overall, then, the book is slightly improved from its predecessor.

The book is certainly well-printed and nicely laid out. However, I think it spends too much space on some photographers who are not very noteworthy, such as Camille Vivier and Jonathan De Villiers. The book could have covered photographers such as Stephen Gill, Anthony Goicolea, Rinko Kawauchi, An-My Lê, Barbara Probst, Alec Soth, and Jules Spinatsch instead. Furthermore, in order to "explore... diverse subjects, styles and methods" it would have been better for one photo from each of several of a photographer's different series to be presented instead of several photos from one series. Take Sam Taylor-Wood on pages 30-31; although she is known for many series, such as "Crying Men," "Soliloquy," and "Bram Stoker's Chair," the book contains only five rather repetitive photos from her 2004 "Self-Portrait Suspended" series. Four of Richard Misrach's "On the Beach" photos appear on pages 56-59, possibly leaving the reader to wonder what his much more famous "Desert Cantos" photos look like.

With its limitations in mind, buy this book from Amazon.com!

BTW, unlike a reviewer of the first edition, I didn't miss the exclusion of artists using photography such as Gerhard Richter. Also, I disagree with another reviewer who wrote that "the work doesn't vary much from artist to artist... [and it is] trendy, elitist, high-priced commodity under the guise of art." Finally, the book gives us more than "a potpourri of unrelated photographs" as a third reviewer wrote.

one-sided view 2006/6/21
投稿者 jack kerr - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
to call this 'art photography now' is a bold move, and this collection is less a survey than an advertisement for a particular style of photography. the work doesn't vary much from artist to artist, and if you don't like color fictive constructions and digital manipulation then you probably won't like this book. as the trend of this type of large scale, color, set-up, advertising-influenced work fades, this book will seem a sad reminder of a rather lame period in photo history when the majority of galleries, critics, artists, and dealers joined forces to produce (like this title) little more than a shopping mall of trendy, elitist, high-priced commodity under the guise of art.

Wonderful 2009/10/11
投稿者 Kristopher - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Ms. Bright provides truly wonderful text and insight into some quite diverse photographers. The photo illustrations are bright (no pun intended) and large. With fewer photographers or illustrations she might have been able to provide more information about the genre, photographer or concept but then I am a visualist and seeing the images alongside her breakdown of them is an immense help to my own progress.
