Sanna Kannisto: Fieldwork by Steve Baker Sanna Kannisto: Fieldwork, Hardback (April 2011)

Explores the dialectics of nature and culture in both artistic and scientific contexts. Breaking away from the conventions of nature photography, which typically presents specimens in isolation, devoid of context, this title addresses the acts of staging and image-making.

Postmodern Animal by Steve Baker Postmodern Animal, Paperback (March 2000)

Explores how animal imagery has been used in modern and contemporary art and performance, and in postmodern philosophy and literature, to suggest and shape ideas about identity and creativity.
