PHOTOGRAPHY REINVENTED: THE COLLECTION OF ROBERT E. MEYERHOFF AND RHEDA BECKER. Sarah Greenough. National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 2016. Published in association with Princeton University Press. 120 pp. with 64 col. ills. 32 x 26 cm. LC 2016-17053 ISBN 9780691172873 In English.
Publisher's description: Photography Reinvented brings together thirty-five works by eighteen critically acclaimed artists who, through innovative experimentation and visionary conceptual scope, have changed the course of contemporary photography. From the seemingly objective, straightforward style and large-scale, vibrantly colored prints of famed Dusseldorf School photographers Andreas Gursky, Candida Hofer, Thomas Struth, and Thomas Ruff to works by groundbreaking contemporary artists, including Thomas Demand, Vik Muniz, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Catherine Opie, Photography Reinventedtraces the aesthetic, technical, and philosophical shifts of the art form during a period of substantial change. Some of the artists, such as Sherman and Demand as well as Muniz and John Baldessari, explore the nature of photography as a medium that appropriates imagery from mass culture and other sources. Others, such as Hofer and Struth, have reassessed iconic works of art and architecture, revealing the relevance of the past in our present lives.
