Still Photography: the problematic model



Lew Thomas NFS Press, 1982. Edgewear with creasing to covers. Edited by Peter D’Agostino and Lew Thomas, Still Photography draws together a number of artists whose work deploys both photography as a medium as well as a critique of photographic representation in an image saturated world. A compendium of artists’ “projects for the page” this book draws together leading experimentalists in the art/photography field of the early 1980s including Dennis Adams, Lutz Bacher, Robert Heinecken, Barbara Kruger, Muntadas and Cindy Sherman. The volume includes many other under-recognized practitioners of the period, making it a fascinating time capsule of early post-modernist art.
