Abstract or Description

Focusing on work in the 1998 exhibition Sightings: New Photographic Art, ICA, London, the emergence of narrative photography in the 1990s and the tension between the documentary and the fictional within these contemporary works will be explored through the concept of the performance space of the photograph. Two articles from one issue of Artforum, in September 1976 – AD Coleman‟s „The Directorial Mode: Notes Towards a Definition‟, and Nancy Foote‟s „The Anti-Photographers‟ – allow for a consideration of the histories of narrative photography and conceptual art that jointly inform this contemporary practice with images by Jennifer Bornstein, Sharon Lockhart and Annika von Hausswolff providing this paper‟s focus.
