Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin

 

Contemporary European Photography


I just bought Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin’s book Ghetto. It’s easily one of the finest photography books I’ve ever bought and I’m quite spoiled. The parts of the book are taken from Colors Magazine of which Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are the editors. I found a few sound clips where they explain their way of work: one, two, three.
There are more samples from the book here.

Update (30 Oct 04): Online photo magazine ak47.tv features photos from Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin’s new book Mr. Mkhizes Portrait & Other Stories from the New South Africa. The book, which I bought a couple days ago, is very similar in style to the one shown in “Ghetto”. Recommended!
