About this title


Shows the Starn Twins' unique approach to photography in a selection of their photographic collages and assemblages

From Library Journal:

Their complex and arresting use of multi-media imagery has made the Starn twins the wunderkinds of the contemporary art world. They work as a unit, appropriating and recasting subject matter from a broad pool of art historical sources. Generally they begin with photographic images and add paper, plastic, chemicals, and other elements to treat their composition. Starn topics range from details of organic forms to double takes of persons or objects. They made a stir at the Whitney Biennial of 1987, and New York Times photography critic Grundberg's text continues this adulation on a grand scale: his monograph is a clearcut attempt to anchor their reputations as modern stars of the art scene; an introductory essay by eminent art historian Robert Rosenblum takes a similar approach. Fortunately, the Starn brothers' work is vivid and interesting enough to justify this attitude, and the plates in this book do justice to their collaboration. Recommended for art school libraries and contemporary art collections-- Paula A. Baxter, NYPL
