Format: Hardcover
I'm just bowled over by the coverage in this book, it gives the complete range of contemporary photography from toe-curlingly throwaway fashion shots to grimy and harrowingly intimate documentary and breathtaking concept snaps.
Easy-reading commentaries from the Curators are useful (but to be taken or left according to taste), and most dangerous of all are the select bibliographies and reference materials for each artist. 100 new book purchases become very tempting. Curse this ...ordering.
Immaculate presentation and beautiful idea. I'd buy a new coffee table for this one.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Tina Lister on August 10, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Blink proves to be an indispensible overview of contemporary world photography as organized by ten curators. They defend their rationale for selection and the 100 photographers clearly serve to define where this art form currently exists. This is not a retrospective but an introspective look at how and why. The images are exciting and the dialogue is cogent. This is the best photographic book in recent memory.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this book a waste of money and time. It's a shame because other reviews led me to believe it was something special. Big disappointment. My loss was minimized though, since I bought it used at a relatively reasonable price.
