Auto Focus : Susan Bright

Picked up a copy of Susan Bright's new book Auto Focus : The Self Portrait in Contemporary Photography. Looking forward to hearing her speak about it this Tuesday at the SVA Theater in conversation with Lyle Rexler.

“Auto Focus,” features the work of 75 contemporary photographers from around the world for whom self-portraiture is a central part of their work. Issues of identity – national, sexual, racial, personal or artistic – are key to all the images featured in this book. “Auto Focus” offers an impressive survey of established and emerging contemporary photographers through the fascinating lens of self-portraiture. It features new work from emerging artists alongside photographs from more established big names, including Elina Brotherus, Nan Goldin, Catherine Opie, Jemima Stehli, Gillian Wearing and Erwin Wurm and includes more than 250 luscious images.
