About this title

Synopsis:

Contains the work of over 25 photographers, including Eugene Atget, Brassai, Roman Vishniac, Josef Sudek, Sune Jonsson, Robert Doisneau, Christer Stromholm, Anders Petersen, Boris Mikhailov, Chris Killip, Jitka Hanzlova and Wolfgang Tillmans. This book navigates an important stream of European practice.

Review:

In the Face of History brings together 22 photographers whose work is rooted in a sense of time and place, and who collectively map out a century of European experience. Some are caught up in moments of epic conflict, while others reflect subtler currents of social change. Intensely personal chronicles of community, family and love sit alongside, and at times overlap with, documents of historical record. The images range from the trenches of the First World War to the Jewish ghetto of Lodz; from the Paris of Atget, Brassaļ and Doisneau to the Berlin of Michael Schmidt and Wolfgang Tillmans; and from cities and suburbs to tiny villages. They document a vast range of experience, but all are distinguished by the photographers' compulsion to record the world as they find it, a world refracted through the prism of their own experience. Often uplifting, sometimes shocking, In the Face of History depicts a past that is fundamentally a part of our present, and in doing so provides a moving new take on what it means to be European.
