Accompanying the first survey of Christopher Williams's work in the UK, this illuminating and unusual volume is equal parts artist's book and exhibition catalogue. Over the course of his thirty-year career, Williams (b.1956) has crafted photographs that engage - often through uncanny mimicry - the conventions of photojournalism, picture archives and commercial imagery, as well as their sociopolitical contexts and implications. This book explores Williams's engagement with his artistic peers and predecessors, with cinema (particularly the film-essay) and with the methods and modes of display and publicity in the art world.As well as a trio of essays, a full bibliography and an illustrated list of works, the catalogue includes a transcript of a talk Williams delivered on the work of John Chamberlain, as well as "interruptions" by additional historical and contemporary textual and visual materials that were selected by the artist himself and are occasionally presented in facsimile form.
