Joan Fontcuberta (Phaidon 55s) (Phaidon 55s)
by Christian Caujolle
Publisher's Description
"A major photographic artist, Fontcuberta constructs a series of elaborate hoaxes to challenge the old, long-cherished and unquestioning belief that a photograph can be a truthful representation of reality. Coming from the tradition of Spanish Surrealism, his photographic world is filled with bizarre plants and creatures of his own manufacture which only on careful scrutiny reveal themselves to be fakes. Essentially, Fontcuberta's work questions the very fundamentals of photography."-the publisher.
