Shoot: Photography of the Moment
by Penny Martin
Publisher's Description
Shoot: Photography of the Moment presents the work of twenty-six photographers whose work focuses on capturing a moment rather than elaborate lighting setups or controlled, manufactured scenarios. Employing the most basic photographic tools—a single-lens reflex camera and natural light——they must rely on their instincts and their ability to interact with a situation to create a dynamic image. This freewheeling approach reflects an era in which we are increasingly bombarded and saturated by images, and the emotional resonance of images has become an important part of our visual vocabulary.

Shoot documents the influence of an older generation of art photographers, such as the legendary Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillmans, and expands on a younger generation of photographers, including Tim Barber and J.H.

Engström, and Glynnis McDaris, to show how this style has gained traction and influence. With a preface by Stephen Shore and introduction by Penny Martin, Shoot is a remarkable survey of the most innovative contemporary photographers working today.

Featured photographers include:
Stephen Shore, Juergen Teller, Linus Bill, J.H. Engström, Nacho Alegre, Thomas Jepe, Nan Goldin, Mark Borthwick, Jason Nocito, Dash Snow, Ola Rindal, Walter Pfeiffe,r Ari Macopoulos, Yurie Nagashima, Kenneth Cappello, Paul Scheik, Boris Mikailov, Hiromix, Tim Barber, Louise Enhörning, Madi Ju, Wolfgang Tillmans, Glynnis McDaris, Peter Sutherland, Michael Schmelling and Jamie Warren.
