In addition to articles by each of the authors, this book contains reproductions of art works that bring fresh understanding to the discussion. In the middle of the book is a section of twenty pages of reproductions of works presented at Dazibao in the context of its 1998-1999 Deviant Practices programming. Five authors explore deviant practices in photography, those practices that work photography over, that knead and shake it up, and push it in new directions, by probing its most intimate mechanisms in unusual confrontations with other disciplines. Among the subjects tackled is the increasingly common infiltration of the photographic, or of photography itself, into artistic practices that are not defined, a priori, as being part of photography. The authors discuss the unofficial history of photography, in which it has maintained, from its inception right up until recent new technological advances, uneasy relations with other media. They examine how the idea of photography as an iconic medium has become outmoded, and explore photography's particular ability to undermine reality and work on a subversive plane.
