This is the first-ever European publication to present a representative cross-section of the work of US-American photographer, Philip-Lorca diCorcia.
Born in 1951, diCorcia is one of the most influential photographers of our time. His images oscillate between everyday moments and theatrically staged arrangements. The realistic representation and the apparently documentary style in his works are subverted by a highly elaborate visual concept.
One of diCorcia’s main themes is whether reality can be represented and this is one of the continuous threads linking his photographs, most of which he creates as series.
Published to accompany the exhibition Philip-Lorca diCorcia at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt/Main, 20 June – 8 September 2013, and De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art, Tilburg, 5 October 2013 – 19 January 2014.
