Vision Anew: The Lens and Screen Arts


I'm very excited to announce my forthcoming book coedited with Charles Traub – Vision Anew: The Lens and Screen Arts (University of California Press, 2015).

Nearly 4 years in the making, the book is follow up to our previous book, The Education of a Photographer, and contains essays, interviews and writings by some of the best artists, filmmakers, critics and thinkers dealing with the lens arts. The book comes out in April, but can be preordered now via UC Press' site or Amazon.

Here's the blurb:
The ubiquity of digital images has profoundly changed the responsibilities and capabilities of anyone and everyone who uses them. Thanks to a range of innovations, from the convergence of moving and still image in the latest DSLR cameras to the growing potential of interactive and online photographic work, the lens and screen have emerged as central tools for many artists. Vision Anew brings together a diverse selection of texts by practitioners, critics, and scholars to explore the evolving nature of the lens-based arts.

Presenting essays on photography and the moving image alongside engaging interviews with artists and filmmakers, Vision Anew offers an inspired assessment of the medium’s ongoing importance in the digital era. Contributors include Ai Weiwei, Gerry Badger, David Campany, Lev Manovich, Christian Marclay, László Moholy-Nagy, Walter Murch, Trevor Paglen, Pipilotti Rist, Shelly Silver, Rebecca Solnit, and Alec Soth, among others. This vital collection is essential reading for artists, educators, scholars, critics and curators, and anyone who is passionate about the lens-based arts.
