Disquieting Images
by Germano Celant
Publisher's Description
A collection of picture memorable for their artistry blended with moving snapshots of contemporary history in the making.

What gets under your skin? What undoes you? Is it the act of depicting, the implicit voyeurism, or the thing itself? Disquieting Images is a confluence of photographic projects from the past forty or so years, cohering in an array of real, albeit disparate, experiences.

Among the photographers: Nina Berman, Elena Dorfman, Donna Ferrato, Julio Cesar Aguilar Fuentes, Nan Goldin, Pieter Hugo, Alfredo Jaar, Philip Jones Griffiths, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mary Ellen Mark, Richard Misrach, James Nachtwey, Michael Nichols, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Stephanie Sinclair, Brain Weil, and Zalmai.

Each of the twenty-four bodies of work here insists that attention be paid, by virtue of what it conveys, how it is perceived, how it challenges, what it says, and what is left unsaid. Disquieting Images is a projective inquiry, a provocation to actively engage.
