HATJE CANTZ

Photography to the Test of Abstraction

Text by Nathalie Giraudeau, Véronique Souben.

Photography to the Test of Abstraction

A hardcover compendium of contemporary abstract photography, featuring work from both established and emerging artists

Since its invention, photography has been associated with realism: what better medium is there to capture the world “exactly as it appears”? However, artists have long experimented with the camera’s ability to produce a less representational style of photography.

In this multifaceted collection of both analog and digital images, today’s most compelling photographers deploy a variety of techniques to create unexpected nonfigurative works.

Established photographers are included alongside emerging artists in this comprehensive survey of abstract photography that speaks to the medium’s endless possibilities. Texts and interviews with the individual artists supplement the photography and provide insight into their craft.

Artists include: Xavier Antin, Walead Beshty, Juliana Borinski, Stan Douglas, Paul Graham, Barbara Kasten, Anaïs Leu, Catherine Opie, Eileen Quinlan, Thomas Ruff, Laure Tiberghien, Wolfgang Tillmans and James Welling.


Featured artwork, by Hannah Whitaker, is reproduced from 'Photography to the Test of Abstraction.'
