Portraits the Portrait in Contemporary Photography
by Peter Weirmair
Publisher's Description
Photography has become the medium which is most often associated with the contemporary portrait. The tension that arises from the two perspectives of the portrait process, that of the artist and that of the sitter, are often in conflict with one another and are resolved differently by different photographers. This excellent overview of international contemporary work, demonstrates a wide variety of possible resolutions--from Thomas Ruff's generation photographs and Patrick Feigenbaum's staged portraits of Roman nobility to the Dramatized portrayals by Pierre et Gilles.
