This title examines the complex ways that sculpture and photography have intersected, historically, aesthetically, and theoretically. Exploring the important role that images of sculpture have played in the history of photography, this volume also considers the impact that photography has had on the creation and interpretation of sculpture. The essays consider a wide range of topics, including the use of photography by Rodin, Brancusi, David Smith, and various Minimalist sculptors; the manipulation of photographs of sculpture for aesthetic and political purposes; the relationship between sculpture, photography, and gender in the late nineteenth century, as well as in the work of Hesse and Mapplethorpe; and the redefinition of the boundaries between sculpture and photography by artists such as Joseph Beuys and Jeff Wall. Using a variety of approaches, this volume also considers photography as a means of representing three-dimensional works of art.
