The only comprehensive publication devoted exclusively to one of the quiet giants of post-conceptual photography (The New York Times), this book celebrates Liz Descheness twenty-year career with immaculately produced images, an interview with the artist, and critical essays. One of the most innovative artists working today, Liz Deschenes continually challenges photographys traditional conventions. Since the mid-1990s her work has evolved as a stripping away of photographys inherent interference with its subjects. Making use of the mediums most fundamental aspects paper, light, chemicals she produces camera-less pieces that not only remind viewers of photographys essential goal of reflecting light and color but also expand its scope into the realm of sculpture. Filled with dazzling reproductions of Descheness installations and lush work, this book includes her key bodies of works, from early color studies to recent hybrid photo-sculptural installations that playfully interact with their environment. An interview captures Deschenes's voice and point of view and a series of critical essays rounds out this unparalleled exploration of an exciting, boundary-pushing artist working at the height of her powers.
