Independent works of art—perfect photographic studies of sculptures

Masterpieces of the genre, from the early days of photography to the present time

Since its birth in the first half of the nineteenth century, photography has provided an unprecedented way to analyze works of art for further study. Through crop, focus, angle of view, degree of close-up, and lighting, as well as through ex post facto techniques of darkroom manipulation, collage, montage, and assemblage, photographers not only interpret the works they record but create stunning reinventions. This publication presents a critical examination of the intersections between photography and sculpture, exploring how the one medium has become implicated in the understanding of the other. Through a selection of nearly three hundred outstanding pictures by more than one hundred artists from the dawn of modernism to the present, the book looks at the ways in which photography at once informs and challenges our understanding of sculpture.
