CRAZY PHOTOGRAPHY. Diane Routex. Artis, 2012. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 160 pp. 20 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781908126412 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: In art as in life, things aren't always what they appear to be. With the invention of photography almost two centuries ago, the subjective eye of the artist had a new rival, and one that ostensibly depicted the world as it actually was. Today we know better, particularly now, in the age of digital imaging when photographs can be adulterated so easily. Crazy Photography presents the work of more than fifty contemporary photographers from all over the world demonstrating how the way we capture and look at images has been revolutionized in recent years. In four chapters, well-known photographers such as Liu Bolin, Ian Crawford and Pep Ventosa alongside young practitioners like Ari Mahardika and Jan Oliehoek take us on a stunning tour through a visual gallery that reflects our dreams and fears and gives us new, original insights into our consciousness as well as our environment. By skilfully manipulating and playing with images, the artists challenge our perceptions and beliefs, inducing in us an altered view of what seems to be familiar or ordinary.
