Cv/VAR 154 publishes a study of photography and art in which authors Marina Vaizey and Anne Blood consider the historical impact of photography from pioneers Hill and Adamson, William Fox Talbot, and Louis Daguerre to contemporary practitioners such as Andreas Gursky and Boris Mikhailov.

The documentary power and graphic clarity of the medium challenged and persuaded artists such as Degas, Sickert, Andy Warhol, and Richard Hamilton, and innumerable creative voices. In their essays Marina and Anne explore the conjunctions and variations where document and dream intermingle, in a revolutionary medium which transformed the classical canons of Western tradition. The volume includes biographical details of leading figures and a guide to national collections and study centres.

Cv acknowledges with gratitude the assistance of Collections and Archives at the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Images, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Fraenkel Gallery, The Estate of Garry Winogrand and Scala Group, Florence, in the process of research for the publication.
