Photography of Invention: American Pictures of the 1980s
by Merry A. Foresta
Publisher's Description
Photography has been used in the past to capture experience and to create images. The images in this book have been made, not taken, examining the pre-existing images or image styles that dominate our culture. Taken from advertising, fashion, movies, television, video and electronic media, these images present the potential of the photographic medium to evolve into an art form independent of the "real." A dramatic tension is drawn between the obviously manipulated subject and the inherent "truth" of the photographic print. A timely and challenging book.
