Rebekah Modrak and Bill Anthes explore photographic theory, history and technique to bring photographic education up-to-date with contemporary photographic practice. Reframing Photography is a broad and inclusive rethinking of photography that will inspire students to think about the medium across time periods, across traditional themes, and through varied materials. Intended for both beginners and advanced students, and for art and non-art majors, and practicing artists.
Chapters include extensive and thoughtful essays, providing broad cultural context for each topic, alongside discussion of photographic examples. Essays introduce the work of artists who use a diverse range of subject matter and a variety of processes, examine artists' conceptual and technical choices, describe cultural implications and artistic influences, and analyze how these concerns interrelate.
Key Features include profiles of contemporary and historical artists. Glossary definitions of critical and technical vocabulary to aid learning. ‘How to’ sections which provide students with illustrated, step by step guides to different photographic methods, alongside related theory and updated information on equipment. Lavishly illustrated, with over 750 images, including artists’ work and examples of photographic processes.
