Item description for I'm a Real Photographer: Keith Arnatt Photographs 1974-2002 by David Hurn & Clare Grafik...

This is the first comprehensive survey of the photography of Keith Arnatt. Born in Oxford, England, in 1930 and now retired, Arnatt established an international reputation in the late 1960s as a conceptual performance artist. In the mid-1970s, however, he surprised the art establishment by abandoning conceptual art. Feeling he had exhausted its possibilities, Arnatt announced his conversion to the then-unfashionable medium of photography. He subsequently worked prolifically over twenty-five years within a short radius of his home in South Wales, making photographic series-mainly of cats, dogs, and the debris of everyday life-that are conceptually sharp, often very funny, and offer a rich commentary on the history of photography. With a personal essay by Magnum photographer David Hurn and an illustrated, contextual essay by curator Clare Grafik, I'm a Real Photographer is published alongside the first major survey of Arnatt's photographs at the Photographers' Gallery in London.

Reviews - What do customers think about I'm a Real Photographer: Keith Arnatt Photographs 1974-2002?

This man has a great eye and a sense of humor.  Feb 10, 2008
Mr. Arnatt has both a great eye for photography and a sense of humor. I found the tight shots of found items, toys and garbage (or rubbish as the British like to say) quite fascinating. By changing their context these rather mundane objects are transformed into art. I suspect that some people may debate whether or not the shots of the garbage are in fact art, but I would argue that Arnatt has turned garbage into found art. As for his sense of humor the notes I think speak for themselves. I particularly like the notes/signs that Arnatt got from a market. I mean "female cucumbers" and "nerve tables for cats and dogs" are just plain hilarious. Even more hilarious are the notes from his wife which kind of remind of notes left for me by my ex- wife (even though I do not think I would have the guts to publish some of my notes). All in all, this is not your typical book of photography and I think that it why I found it so entertaining.
