Unique: Special Edition (Signed and Numbered)



What is a “unique” photograph? Is it still possible to make photographs that are unique, given the medium’s ubiquity in our world?

Unique: Making Photographs in the Age of Ubiquity is a thoughtful guide for photographers through today’s complex landscape of images, with the ultimate goal of understanding how to make images that matter. Artist and editor Katherine Oktober Matthews leads readers through a way of thinking about images over three parts: Understanding Photographs, Making Photographs, and Moving in Pursuit of Unique. In images, Unique features work by nearly fifty contemporary artists, both established and emerging, who have taken a role in defining the language of photography. This Special Edition includes Unique: The Workbook, a practical companion to the theory-based book, and includes more than 35 exercises that invite you to analyze, reflect, investigate, and practice.

This special edition is produced in a limited edition of 100 copies and is signed and numbered.
