Item description for Piotr Uklanski by Geoffrey Batchen...

Piotr Uklanski's The Joy of Photography series is named after a Kodak handbook for amateur photographers that has equipped generations of enthusiasts with the techniques necessary in their quest for the perfect shot. However, in the age of the digital camera, the practices advocated in the Kodak manual are now rarely deployed. "The guy who buys a special filter in order to better photograph the sunset has disappeared," laments Uklanski. For this project, adopting this near-obsolete manual as a guide, Uklanski set out on a hunt to redeem its ideas and its perspectives. Exceptionally colorful and coolly artistic, the 50 photographs collected in this book flirt with abstraction, frequently eluding easy comprehension. This volume is the first complete presentation of Uklanski's nostalgic homage.
The New York-based conceptual artist Piotr Uklanski was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1968. He has had solo exhibitions at Gavin Brown's enterprise and at The Museum of Modern Art's project space in New York.
