This survey presents the work of eighty of the most important and best-loved artist-photographers in the world today. Susan Bright has organized the book into seven sections - portrait, landscape, narrative, object, fashion, document, and city - each of which explores the diverse subjects, styles, and methods adopted by artists. Introductions to each section outline the genres and consider why photographers are attracted to certain themes, and how issues like memory, time, objectivity, politics, identity, and the everyday are tied to certain approaches. Each photographer's work is then presented in sequence, with commentaries by the author highlighting the art's most important aspects. Quotations from the artists appear alongside to offer valuable insights into their motivations, inspirations, and intentions.
