Photography’s Expanded Field

Photography's Expanded Field is the third book of the Small Run Books series, comprising three texts in contemporary theory and history of photography authored by American art critic George Baker.

Baker analyses the conditions of photography as a medium (moving and still images) and the era of New Objectivity, taking as an example the oeuvre of its main representative August Sander. He poses the question regarding the fate of photography and cinema in the contemporary production of culture, the autonomy of photography, and its new forms.

George Baker is an art historian and critic, Professor of Art History at UCLA. He graduated from Yale and finished his PhD at Columbia University, studying under Rosalind Krauss and Benjamin Buchloh. Since 1990, Baker regularly contributes to Artforum magazine; also he is one of the editors of October journal and October Books publishing house. He is the author of The Artwork Caught by the Tail. Francis Picabia and Dada in Paris (2007).

Translated from English by Roksolana Sviato.
