About this title


This major book documents the work of twin brothers whose work with the photograph pushed beyond the boundaries of convention. In an in-depth article by former New York Times photography critic Andy Grundberg, their background, the motivations, and their critical acclaim are described. Critic Robert Rosenblum offers his insights in a detailed introduction, and former Contemporary Arts Center curator Sarah Rogers-Lafferty interview the brothers, asking them to describe their techniques and their dialogues, both between themselves and with their work. Exhibition checklist, biography, bibliography, 92 full color images, 30 black and white images.

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.
