Summary
"Chronologically examining the nature of his art within the context of mass media and photojournalism, this handsome volume charts the thirty-year career of the artist and photographer Christopher Williams (b. 1956). Featuring 100 color illustrations, the book also includes a trio of essays by authors Mark Godfrey, Roxana Marcoci, and Matthew S. Witkovsky that demonstrate how Williams, with high craft and a critical eye, deliberately engages yet reinterprets the conventions of photojournalism, picture archives, and commercial imagery through uncanny mimicry. Committed to the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, Williams's current series tackles the interplay of photography and cinema, upending viewer expectations and the role of spectacle"--
