Author and publisher.
What is a “unique” photograph? Is it still possible to make photographs that are unique, given the medium’s ubiquity in our world?
Unique: Making Photographs in the Age of Ubiquity is a thoughtful guide for photographers through today’s complex landscape of images, with the ultimate goal of understanding how to make images that matter. Artist and editor Katherine Oktober Matthews leads readers through a way of thinking about images over three parts: Understanding Photographs, Making Photographs, and Moving in Pursuit of Unique.
In images, Unique features work by nearly fifty contemporary artists, both established and emerging, who have taken a role in defining the language of photography.
