Descripción

Photography to the Test of Abstraction explores the multiple facets of the notion of abstraction in the field of contemporary photography. Based on an in-depth analysis of the works and texts from historians, this book proposes to reveal the challanges of this practice, leading us to revisit the premises in its most scientific aspects up to its most recent developments, which involve advanced technologies. Here, renowed artists such as Stan Douglas, Zoe Leonard, Thomas Ruff and Barbara Kasten meet photographers of the younger generation such as Laure Tiberghien, Sebastian Riemer, Anouk Kruithof or Hannah Whitaker and join in the blossoming of an inventive and captivating visual universe.
