Product description


'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.'
Library Journal

'A lavishly illustrated guide…'
Miami Herald

'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…'
