Vitamin Ph: New Perspectives in Photography
Library Shelf Location 27.DEMO
Publication Date 20 Oct 2006
Description "Vitamin Ph" provides a third dose of visual stimulation and vital information, following on from the successes of "Vitamin P" and "Vitamin D". Similar in concept, scope and structure, "Vitamin Ph" presents, in A to Z order, the work of 122 international artists. This up-to-the-minute survey focuses on global developments in art photography and the use of the medium by contemporary artists. 78 nominators worldwide have identified living artists who have made a fresh and innovative contribution to recent international photography. All works reproduced in the book use photography as their primary medium or source material, whether or not they then develop into or merge with other media. Extending beyond the parameters of straight photography to encompass sculptural, painterly and filmic elements, "Vitamin Ph" explores the medium in an expanded sense. The artists represented have emerged, or re-emerged, in the last five years to create a distinctive body of new work. "Vitamin Ph" aims to contribute to international debates on contemporary photography whilst providing an accessible overview and concise reference book.
