Publisher's description 
  
In ‘staged’ photography the artist takes on the role of a director, creating or staging an image. He or she uses models, props, costumes or lighting, often creating a theatrical quality. This beautifully produced book traces the history of the staged photograph, focusing on such key themes as the artist as actor, art historical imagery, and narratives and allegories. It includes engaging essays on Victorian tableaux vivants, Surrealism, and iconic photographs from the 1930s and 1940s previously thought to be documentary images but that were in fact staged.  
  
The first major illustrated history of staged photography as an artistic tradition, tracing trends and examining works from photography’s beginnings to the present day. Features key works by such important artists as O.G. Rejlander, Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Gregory Crewdson, Man Ray, Claude Cahun, Jeff Wall, Cindy Sherman and Wang Qingsong • Will appeal to anyone interested in the history of photography or in contemporary art
