Andy Grundbergs crisis of the real wrestles with what postmodernism actually is. Grundberg believes that postmodernism is a condition in which reality, authentic experience, originality, and individual artistic expression have become obsolete. Grundberg attempts to find out the history postmodernism and also relate it back to the practice of photography as art.

Crisis Of The Real
Writings on Photography By Andy Grundberg. Known internationally for his articles in The New York Times and other publications, Andy Grundberg has been one of the most respected and widely read voices in photography and the visual arts for nearly 30 years. Over the course of the 50 essays and articles in this authoritative collection, Grundberg questions the nature of photography and how we perceive it, reevaluates some of the great photographers of our time and brings into focus the major debates in photography at the end of the twentieth century. Although some essays were originally written more than 30 years ago, the issues and concerns addressed by Grundberg remain relevant today. But what do we mean when we call a work of art postmodernist? And what does postmodernism mean for photography? How does it relate to, and challenge, the tradition of photographic practice as Beaumont Newhall has so conscientiously described it?
