'Larry Sultan & Mike Mandel: Evidence' eBook Now Available from iTunes

In the 2004 second edition of Evidence, Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel's seminal 1977 collection of found photography, Sandra Phillips wrote, "Today we are more accustomed to seeing pictures plucked from their original context and put on the wall of a museum of published as objects of artistic value, all without identifying or instructional text... At the time Evidence was [first] published, however, such a decontextualized presentation of photography, especially photographs made for the purpose of record, was a new phenomenon, and directed toward a still relatively tiny audience—those interested in photography as a kind of art. Yet the book proved to be a modest bombshell. It was elusive and poetic, it needed the viewer's active thought and engagement, it was not strictly speaking political, in those most political of times, and it was a challenge to those who thought they knew what art photographs looked like. Thanks to a renewed interest in conceptualism, and now a regard for photography's central role in contemporary art, this modest book today seems premonitory rather than dated or quaint. Its republication is a tribute to the continued resonance of these pictures." Now available as an eBook edition through iTunes.
