"Liz Deschenes is one of the leading artists of her generation. Exploring ideas of reflection, opticality, and the conditions of production and viewership, her work ultimately tests the limits of what constitutes as photograph. Although grounded in the histories of photography and film, Deschenes also engages the language of sculpture, architecture, and exhibition design to consider the apparatus of viewing all art. This book surveys two decades of her career, featuringg reflective silver-plated photographs, brightly hued dye transfer prints, and site-specific installations of hybrid photo-sculptures. Examining Deschenes's compelling art from multiple perspectives, this volume accompanies the first comprehensive museum exhibition of her work"--Back cover.
