This book presents the impressive artistic oeuvre of Allan Sekula with corresponding texts - from his earliest works of the 1970s to the present.

With his combination of photography and essay, performance and critical journalism, the American-born photo-conceptionist Allan Sekula (born in Erie in 1951) is one of the most interesting personalities in contemporary art. His works frequently focus on changes in the working environment in the face of the global economy-like his much-discussed cycle Fish Story first presented at Documenta11. This book features a comprehensive view of Allan Sekula´s artistic work and the texts belonging to it. It encompasses his earliest works from the seventies as well as newer ones, including Dear Bill Gates (1999), his most popular work to date, and his most recent project Black Tide (2002-03). The publication is supplemented by an interview with the artist by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh and an essay about Sekula´s interest in the theatrical, which acts as a foil to the documentary, descriptive side of his work, infusing it with wit and fine irony.
