The Anxiety of Photography

The library is experiencing very heavy demand for the catalogue of the 'Anxiety of Photography' exhibition held at the Aspen Art Museum in 2011.  There are ten requests and we only have two copies, which means there is quite a long wait for the book.  The book is now so expensive, that we can't buy additional copies.

I checked the exhibition website, and helpfully they have put the three principal essays in the catalogue online.  Here they are:

Matthew Thompson - The Object Lost and Found

Anne Ellegood - The Photographic Paradox

Jenelle Porter - Why Red Cabbage?

The Anxiety of Photography includes work by Colby Bird, Miriam Böhm, Liz Deschenes, Roe Ethridge, Brendan Fowler, Mario Garcia Torres, Leslie Hewitt, Matt Keegan, Annette Kelm, Elad Lassry, Anthony Pearson, Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Matt Saunders, David Benjamin Sherry, Erin Shirreff, Dirk Stewen, Sara VanDerBeek, and Mark Wyse
