Book Description 
  
Joan Fontcuberta (b.1955) became a photographer in the 1970s. Coming from the tradition of Spanish Surrealism, he creates elaborate photographic hoaxes that challenge and provoke, forcing us to re-examine the relationship between photography and reality. The only reliable information a photograph can tell us, Foncuberta believes, is that it is just that - a photograph.
