The only comprehensive publication devoted exclusively to one of the quiet giants of post-conceptual photography, this book celebrates Liz Deschenes' career with immaculately produced images, an interview with the artist, and critical essays.

One of the most innovative artists working today, Liz Deschenes continually challenges photography's traditional conventions. Since the mid-1990s her work has evolved as a stripping away of photography's inherent interference with its subjects. Making use of the medium's most fundamental aspects - paper, light, chemicals - she produces camera-less pieces that not only remind viewers of photography's essential goal of reflecting light and colour but also expand its scope into the realm of sculpture. Filled with dazzling reproductions of Deschenes's installations and lush work, this book includes her key bodies of works, from early colour studies to recent hybrid photo-sculptural installations that playfully interact with their environment. An interview captures Deschenes's voice and point of view and a series of critical essays rounds out this unparalleled exploration of an exciting, boundary-pushing artist working at the height of her powers.
