Abstract

Art and Photography is the first book of its kind to survey the major presence of photography at the centre of artistic practice from the 1960s onwards. On its invention, the photograph was considered a purely mechanical, an artless object that could not be included in the fine arts. Despite its increasing use by the twentieth century's most significant artists, only since the late 1960s have art museums gradually begun to exhibit and acquire the photograph as an artwork. Today photography is the pre-eminent artistic medium for contemporary artists.
