THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

Edited with text by Quentin Bajac, Lucy Gallun, Roxana Marcoci, Sarah Hermanson Meister. Text by David Campany, Noam Elcott, Eva Respini, Robert Slifkin.

Photography at MoMA: 1960 to Now

Transformative decades of contemporary photography from the collection of MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art has one of the greatest collections of 20th-century photography in the world. As one of three volumes dedicated to a new history of photography published by the Museum, this publication comprises a comprehensive catalogue of the collection post-1960s and brings much-needed new critical perspective to the most prominent artists working with the photographic medium of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. At a moment when photography is undergoing fast-paced changes and artists are seeking to redefine its boundaries in new and exciting ways, Photography at MoMA serves as an excellent resource for understanding the expanded field of contemporary photography today.
The book begins with an in-depth introduction followed by eight chapters of full-color plates, each introduced by a short essay. Over 250 artists are featured, including Diane Arbus, John Baldessari, Jan Dibbets, Rineke Dijkstra, William Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, Louise Lawler, Zoe Leonard, Helen Levitt, Sigmar Polke, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall, Carrie Mae Weems, Hannah Wilke and Garry Winogrand, among many others.

Photography at MoMA: 1960 to Now

Photography at MoMA: 1960 to Now, Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman's "Untitled #446" (2008) is reproduced from Photography at MoMA: 1960 to Now, the first in a new three-volume series from The Museum of Modern Art. In his essay, Between the Snapshot and Staged Photography, David Campany asks, "Who is she? An archetype of new money? An aspect of Sherman's own character? And what is this picture? An upholding of tradition or a trashing of it? Compassion or cruel satire? To what extent does the photograph belong to the contradictory narratives of contemporary social life?" continue to blog
