SHOOT is a collection of ‘photography of the moment’ by Stephen Shore, Nan Goldin, Walter Pfeiffer, Boris Mikhailov, Wolfgang Tillmans, Juergen Teller, Mark Borthwick, Ari Marcopoulos, Hiromix, Glynnis McDaris, Linus Bill, Jason Nocito, Yurie Nagashima, Tim Barber, Peter Sutherland, JH Engstrom, Dash Snow, Kenneth Cappello, Louise Enhorning, Michael Schmelling, Nacho Alegre, Ola Rindal, Paul Schiek, Madi Ju, Jaimie Warren and Thomas Jeppe.

“From SLRs to disposables to digital cameras to PDAs, the photographic image is more prolific than at any point since the medium’s inception. Whether working in personal documentary, editorial, fine art or fashion, the photographers in SHOOT share a democratic, emotionally intuitive approach to picture-taking that reflects an era in which we increasingly use ephemeral images to define our own lives.”

SHOOT includes a foreword by legendary photographer Stephen Shore, in addition to a critical essay by professor Penny Martin (of pioneering fashion site and the London College of Fashion) with a historical overview by editor Ken Miller (Revisionaries; A Decade of Art in Tokion).
