Stephen Frailey


Inspired by John Szarkowski’s 1973 Looking at Photographs, and paying homage to the concept of the one hundred images and a page of text for each, Stephen Frailey now updates this classic with significant works of photography from early 80s to the present. Looking at Photography covers all genres of photography, and through discussing the process of the individual works Frailey – as photographer, editor and educator – articlulates the themes and sensibilities of contemporary photography. The book is illustrated with major works by acclaimed artists such as Tina Barney, Jeff Wall, Steven Meisel, Nan Goldin, Helmut Newton, Martin Parr, Tim Walker, Wolfgang Tillmans, among others.
