Allan Sekula
Dismal Science: Photoworks 1972-1996

Dismal Science is the definitive edition of seven acclaimed photographic projects made by Allan Sekula over the last 24 years, and also includes a number of critical essays by Sekula on contemporary photography.

His hybrid works, incorporating photographic sequences, slide projections, texts, and audio recordings, question the conventions of documentary photography, while tracing strange linkages between everyday life and the global economic system.

Dismal Science is published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the University Galleries of Illinois State University that travelled to eight venues between 1996-1998 including the Netherlands foto institute, Rotterdam, the Munich Kunstverein, and the John Curtin Gallery, Perth, Australia.

* Condition: Good (creasing to top-right corner of front cover, otherwise a clean, tight copy throughout) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
