What are young photographers up to at the outset of the twenty-first century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on, or reject tradition? Are they busy in the darkroom or the computer lab--or both? reGeneration sets out to discover answers to these intriguing questions, previewing the work of fifty photographers who may well emerge as some of the finest of their generation. This remarkable book, the broadest and most enterprising survey of its kind, showcases the creativity, ingenuity, and inspiration of these up-and-coming photographic artists in over two hundred superb images. Curators at the world-renowned Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne selected the photographers from hundreds of candidates submitted by more than sixty of the world's top photography schools. The panel's choice was made with one key question in mind: are these images likely to be known in twenty years' time? The results show that, as the new century builds momentum, the art of photography is alive and well, and that photographers of extraordinary talent are already making their mark.
