Sarah Charlesworth explored an array of artistic expressions, from conceptual photography in the 1970s, appropriation of images associated with the Pictures Generation in the 1980s, and studio-based photography using props and setups beginning in the 1990s.
At each turn, her growth as an artist paralleled the evolution of photography as a contemporary medium.
This richly illustrated monograph offers a historical perspective on Charlesworth's art and reflects extensive access to her archive, including notebooks, sketchbooks, diaries, studio logs, test prints, and many never-before-published images, revealing her thought processes over time and their articulation within and across her career.
Opening with a chronological essay followed by examinations of particular aspects of the artist's evolving practice, the book reevaluates and clarifies Charlesworth's impact as a photographer, writer, and theorist.
