Lucidity. Inward Views

Edited by Anne-Marie Ninacs
Guest Curator, 12th edition

In this lavishly illustrated book, guest curator Anne-Marie Ninacs introduces the 25 artists whose works are exhibited in this international biennale of contemporary photography. The publication also features new essays by philosophers, art historians, and theorists of visual culture, who shed light on the relationships between photography and lucidity. The artists presented here in a way turn their cameras towards themselves and conceive of lens-based arts as an introspective process, an opportunity for meditation, a mode of consciousness, even as a means of revealing the unconscious. At a time when misery in the world is multiplying, the movement toward a form of photography that seeks to reveal the invisible conflicts and traces of wisdom within ourselves seems urgent. This book humbly cultivates the hope that such photography can give us all a bit of the “transparency of mind” that is the psychological meaning given by the modern world to the term lucidity. With essays by Pierre Bertrand, Maxime Coulombe, Robert Enright, Roger Lipsey, Anne-Marie-Ninacs, Christine Ross, and Richard Shusterman.
