Full description of the book The Photograph as Contemporary Art:A short illustrated survey of the use of photography in contemporary art since the mid-1980s.

Themed chapters consider subjects such as narrative and storytelling in art photography, photographing the everyday and the insignificant, the use of photography in conceptual art, and the cool, detached, objective aesthetic prevalent in current art photography.
