How should art history and visual studies integrate the special technical and aesthetic challenges posed by the medium and respond to the intense interest it has provoked in the art world in recent years? In this timely volume, fifteen leading scholars discuss the discipline, practice, historiography, and study of photography, from William Henry Fox Talbot to Louise Lawler, and reflect on the status of photography today. In addition, the book features works by important contemporary artists that probe and illustrate these same issues, together offering new perspectives on the field and what photography means to us in the early 21st century.

Photography and the Art of Chance by Robin Kelsey Photography and the Art of Chance, Hardback (May 2015)

As anyone who has wielded a camera knows, photography has a unique relationship to chance. It also represents a struggle to reconcile aesthetic aspiration with a mechanical process. Robin Kelsey reveals how daring innovators expanded the aesthetic limits of photography in order to create art for a modern world.

Light Years by Robin Kelsey Light Years, Hardback (February 2012)

Photography played a critical role in conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s, as artists turned to photography as both medium and subject matter. This title offers a survey of the key artists of this period who used photography to new and inventive ends.

Archive Style by Robin Kelsey Archive Style, Hardback (June 2007)

Aims to reveal how the political predicaments of a few small bureaucracies once fostered pictures of an extraordinary style. This book offers an interpretation of canonical western expedition photographs by Timothy H O'Sullivan and introduces views of the US-Mexico boundary from the 1850s, and photographs of the Charleston earthquake of 1886.
