9783791343181: The Digital Eye: Photographic Art in the Electronic Age

Photographers who use digital technologies as tools for creative expression are driving the most exciting and transformative developments in today's photography. Digital photographic and imaging technologies are the most recent development in an art and science whose history is one of constant technological innovation. Using sophisticated software and scanners, artists are able to enhance or alter photographs, and create mesmerizing effects. Focusing exclusively on digital photography, Sylvia Wolf explores a medium that challenges our notions of the role of the artist and of an image's relationship to the real. Taking readers from the earliest experiments in digital photography to the latest innovations, Wolf offers a historical perspective and points to future trends. The work of a global panoply of artists, including Ida Applebroog, Sheila Pree Bright, Peter Campus, Xing Danwen, Joan Fontcuberta, Tom Friedman, Andreas Gursky, Martina Lopez, Loretta Lux, Mary Mattingly, Wendy McMurdo, Andreas Maller-Pohle, Thomas Ruff, Lucas Samaras, and Jeff Wall, demonstrates how diverse and complex the field has become. This expert survey offers a riveting snapshot of a medium that is changing the way we look at pictures and the world.

Book Description PRESTEL, Germany, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 201 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The rise of digital photography is perhaps the most manifest legacy of the digital revolution in art. Through the use of sophisticated software and scanners, artists are able to enhance photographs, saturate them with colour, and create mesmerizing effects. Focusing exclusively on digital photography and its enormous varieties of technique and style being practiced today, Sylvia Wolf explores a genre that challenges our notions of the art and the role of the artist. This lavishly illustrated book takes readers from the earliest experiments in digital photography to the latest innovations. Wolf candidly discusses issues of authenticity and narrative and points to technological trends of the future. A global panoply of artists, including Andreas Gursky, Chris Jordan, Loretta Lux, and Lucas Samaras, demonstrates just how diverse and complex the field has become. Today as digital photography is being used by artists to portray unbridled consumption and warn of ecological disaster; as artists employ Photoshop, Google and their own programming skills to create software-cum-art objects; and as seasoned photographers turn from film to their laptops, this volume offers a riveting snapshot of a medium that is changing the way we look at pictures.
