Peter C. Bunnell


Peter C. Bunnell has been a major force in shaping the discourse about photography. This collection of texts-selected from work published throughout Bunnell’s career- marks his significant contribution to the field he has helped to establish. In each of the thirty-four essays, each devoted to individual (predominantly American) photographers and three key galleries, Bunnell brings to bear his distinctive sensibility and insight. While encouraging the reader to see previously overlooked aspects of the images he discusses so eloquently, he also provides an invaluable historical context for the photographers and their work. Bunnell offers a unique personal perspective on the world of art photography, documenting its journey as it morphed from a small group of practitioners to the supercharged international marketplace of today.
