The Construction of an Image
a book by Bas Princen
Photography has become content, instantly uploaded and peer-reviewed in ‘likes’. The Construction of an Image assumes the opposite stance wherein Dutch photographer Bas Princen takes a single image – Ringroad, Houston – to deconstruct and discuss in detail. By studying one photograph, time is given over to process to enable insight into the mind of the photographer and to make manifest the chronology of a project’s conception to its realisation. With texts by Kersten Geers, Moritz Küng and Geoff Manaugh; edited by Vanessa Norwood.
