Out of Focus: Photography - Saatchi Gallery

Matt Collishaw, Madonna, 2002
Out of Focus: Photography at The Saatchi Gallery is a wide ranging, but selective, survey of contemporary art photography. 38 artists are featured, including both familiar and unfamiliar names; approaches are varied and include artists using found images and working in collage and montage and, as in the Collishaw example above, ceramic, cement, wood and paint!
A selection of examples is shown below: click on images to enlarge; see the Saatchi website for full details.
