Edited by David Campany

Part of the acclaimed 'Documents of Contemporary Art' series of anthologies.

This anthology surveys the rich history of relationships between the moving and the still image in photography and film, tracing their ever-changing dialogue since early modernism. Manifestations of the cinematic in photography and of the photographic in cinema have been a springboard for the work of many of the most influential contemporary artists. Their work is contextualized here alongside the work of leading photographers and filmmakers from Muybridge and Eisenstein to the present.
