Photography has been called “nature’s pen,” for it is incomparable in its ability to capture and keep images of the world on paper. It therefore makes sense to associate this medium mainly with figurative images. Three museums would like to clear up this misunderstanding in this book. At its centre is today’s multifaceted, imaginative abstract photography, which fluctuates between analogue and digital images. This publication compiles non-figurative works of photography to create a comprehensive, fundamental survey. Here, famous fine art photographers such as Wolfgang Tillmans and Thomas Ruff meet exciting, newly discovered photographers.
