Photo Revolution: Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman
(1000 items available)
This volume explores how and why the second half of the 20th century proved such a fruitful moment for the ascendance of photography. It investigates pop art, conceptual art and emerging photo-based art forms such as film and television through the lens of fine-art photography and vernacular photography.In addition to an essay on the ill-fitting place of photography in art historical surveys of the 1960s and ’70s, the book also includes essays by scholars and collectors re-examining more specialised outlets for photography. These include explorations of the use of collage, the brief fashion craze of paper dresses and the significance of television programming and news photography as source material for art production.
