Aperture is pleased to reissue Andy Grundberg's Crisis of the Real, a classic publication of important writings. This is an essential work for anyone seeking clarity and insight into photography's place in today's world. Known internationally for his articles in the New York Times and other publications, Grundberg offers interpretations and critical opinions that have helped shape the broad understanding of photography's complex roles in art and the media. Over the course of the fifty essays and articles in this authoritative collection, Grundberg questions the nature of photography and how we perceive it, reevaluates some of the great photographers of our time, and brings into focus the major debates in photography at the end of the twentieth century.

Andy Grundberg is a critic, curator, and teacher in Washington, D.C., where he is the associate dean of undergraduate studies and chair of photography at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. From 1981 to 1991, he was an art critic for the New York Times, for which he continues to write today.
