Publisher's description: When contemporary artist Martin Zellerhoff (b. 1964) edits analog photographs on his computer and places them alongside unprocessed analog images, he produces slight interferences that immediately activate the viewer's comparative memory. He sets out to accomplish by artistic means exactly what the digital image devices can't provide: a dialogic structure. Zellerhoff (who assisted Thomas Struth for over 10 years and oversaw artistic production for Christopher Williams from 2004 to 2007) crosses the fine line between image and art to question the mechanisms by which cultural value is attributed. This artist book works, according to the artist, "just like my exhibitions," using the simultaneous viewing of images, sight lines and voids in varying order to stimulate questions regarding image and art and the distinction between concept and craft, technical mastery and artistic skill. With a text by art historian Ursula Panhas-Buhler.
