The arrival of photography changed the course of painting forever. In this publication, the dynamic relationship between the two mediums is explored through some of the most iconic artworks of recent times.From the expressive paintings of Pablo Picasso and Paula Rego to striking photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, we see how these art forms have responded to and shaped each other in ways both small and large. We also discover how the boundaries between painting and photography have been blurred to create new and exciting modes of expression, such as Pauline Boty’s pop paintings, Andy Warhol’s silkscreen prints, the photorealist works of Gerhard Richter, or Andreas Gursky’s large-scale panoramic photographs.Featuring contributions from the artists featured as well as a series of spotlight essays by some of today's most exciting writers, Capturing the Moment provides a fresh and engaging overview of the relationship between the brush and the lens, and the way in which artists have turned to painting and photography to capture moments in time.
