Photography and Collaboration: From Conceptual Art to Crowdsourcing
This product is currently sold out.
An exploration of contemporary collaborative art photography, featuring 15 international case studies and a wide range of practices, from conceptual art to crowdsourced digital imagery.
Photography and Collaboration offers a fresh perspective on existing debates in art photography and on the act of photography in general. Unlike conventional accounts that celebrate individual photographers and their personal visions, this books investigates the idea that authorship in photography is often more complex and multiple than we can imagine - involving not only various forms of partnership between photographer, but also an astonishing array of relationships with photographed subjects and viewers.
Thematic chapters explore the increasing prevalence of collaborative approaches to photography among a broad range of international artists - from conceptual practices in the 1960's to the most recent digital manifestations. Positioning contemporary work in a broader historical and theoretical context, the book reveals that collaboration is an overlooked but essential dimension of the mediums development and potential.
