Concrete Photography can be seen as a new subsection within Concrete Art. It therefore appears alongside other respective modes of artistic expression, such as Concrete Painting, Concrete Music or Concrete Poetry. Likewise, however, it is a subsection of photography. Altogether we are looking at a phenomenon or discipline for which to date there exist neither a conclusive theory, nor a comprehensive documentation even though autonomous images of its kind already emerged in the early twentieth century, vividly exerting
influence even today. Concrete Photography is, therefore, a veritable art form in its own right. This publication is the first in book form to present the history, esthetics and technique of the genre, and it introduces approx. 150 works by 80 international artists.
