'Demos is absolutely right in the most crucial respects – contemporary photography oscillates between the conceptual and the committed ... Vitamin Ph is a lavish and useful guide'
'[a] savvy, eccentric, and pointedly provocative book ... Vitamin Ph catches a medium on the fly and in flux. It's a snapshot of a subject that's far too restless to stay put.'
'The book exhibits an impressive breadth.'
'This remarkable survey of 121 photographers from over 30 countries demonstrates that contemporary photographers are exploring and resetting the bounds of the medium. It is truly exciting to see in one place so much creative punch, which is made more so by the thoughtful and specialist-penned essays on each artist packed with critical thought, historical comments, and theory.'
'A lavishly illustrated guide...'
'Like Phaidon's excellent volumes on painting (‘Vitamin P’) and drawing (‘Vitamin D’), this is a comprehensive effort, representing artists from all fields (documentary, portraits, video, etc.) and 30 countries...the scale of the project and the talent of those chosen is undeniable.'
The New York Post
'Essential for the tirelessly au courant...'
"Vitamin Ph" provides a third dose of visual stimulation and vital information, following on from the successes of "Vitamin P" and "Vitamin D". Similar in concept, scope and structure, "Vitamin Ph" presents, in A to Z order, the work of 122 international artists. This up-to-the-minute survey focuses on global developments in art photography and the use of the medium by contemporary artists. 78 nominators worldwide have identified living artists who have made a fresh and innovative contribution to recent international photography. All works reproduced in the book use photography as their primary medium or source material, whether or not they then develop into or merge with other media. Extending beyond the parameters of straight photography to encompass sculptural, painterly and filmic elements, "Vitamin Ph" explores the medium in an expanded sense. The artists represented have emerged, or re-emerged, in the last five years to create a distinctive body of new work. "Vitamin Ph" aims to contribute to international debates on contemporary photography whilst providing an accessible overview and concise reference book.
