A new collaborative venture between Manuel Vason and forty of the most visually arresting artists working with performance in the United Kingdom, Double Exposures brings together newly commissioned images and essays to explore new ways of bridging performance and photography. Ten years after Vason’s first book, Exposures, this ambitious project draws into sharp focus the body, the diptych, documentation, the photobook, identity, mediation, collaborative practices, and the relationship between photography and performance. With essays by leading critics, academics, and practitioners, this collection solidifies Vason’s centrality to the photography of performance.
