Résumé
In the first book devoted to representations of Jesus Christ in contemporary photography, Nathalie Dietschy presents a rich range of images from the 1980s to the present day.
Acclaimed photographers such as Catherine Opie, Joan Fontcuberta, Greg Semu, Andres Serrano, David LaChapelle, Renee Cox and Bettina Rheims offer fresh – and often provocative – depictions of Christ that address issues from race to sexuality to gender. "The Figure of Christ in Contemporary Photography" guides the reader through these alternative representations, analysing the complex social, political and cultural issues that the photographs bring to light.
