This book examines the rich historical legacy of photography and the aesthetic shifts that have taken place in the medium over the last 170 years. Roxana Marcoci has built on extensive conversations and collaborations with living artists to explore sculpture’s uses within contemporary art practice. She also asks the question, 'What is sculpture?,' tracing it through a selection of 300 pictures that tap on a broad spectrum of expressions, ranging in subject from inanimate objects to the performing human body.
