A remarkable showcase of the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of over eighty up-and-coming photographic artists

Overview

What are young photographers up to in the 21st century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on or reject tradition? Are they busy in the darkroom or the computer lab – or both?

The reGeneration project – the broadest and most enterprising survey of its kind – has set out to discover answers to these intriguing questions, previewing the work of young photographers who may well emerge as some of the finest artists of their generation.

Following on from the success of reGeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow curators at the world-renowned Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne selected the most promising candidates from some 700 entries submitted by 120 of the world’s top photography schools in thirty countries.

This remarkable book showcases the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of the eighty chosen photographic artists. With over 200 superb images, it proves that the art of photography is alive and well, and that practitioners of extraordinary talent are already well on their way to making their mark.
