Following the success of 2005's groundbreaking book and exhibition reGeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow 2005–2025, reGeneration 2: Tomorrow's Photographers Today turns the spotlight yet again on the next generation of potential stars. reGeneration 2 proves that the art of photography is alive and well, and that practitioners of extraordinary talent are well on their way to making their mark. The selection was made with one key question in mind: is the photographer likely to be known in twenty years' time?
Through over two hundred images, reGeneration 2 showcases the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of eighty up-and-coming photographic artists. The variety of subjects and techniques on view in this remarkable reflects the astonishing diversity of worldwide talent that has newly emerged. Useful reference materials include biographical details of each of the eighty photographers included and updates on the winning photographers from the first edition, many of whom have since forged impressive international careers, including Pieter Hugo, Idris Khan, Angela Strassheim, and Nathalie Czech.
