Andreas Gursky, 99 cent, 1999
The third Zoom talk moves away from documentary style photography and instead focuses on contemporary artists who thrive on purposely creating illusions. You are going to love the way in which artists including Andreas Gursky, Thomas Demand, Vic Muniz, Cindy Sherman and Gregory Crewdson break away from traditional boundaries of photography, creating works that involve set design, costumes, actors, make-up, sculpture, and much more.
