Reflecting a time of unprecedented creative energy and diversity in photography, the Photoworks Monograph series surveys the work of the most important emerging photographers in the UK. Comprehensively illustrated, and with specially commissioned texts, these substantial 112-page monographs are the first in-depth study of each artist’s work, acknowledging their achievement to date while introducing their work to a broader audience.

Bettina von Zwehl has built an international reputation for her subtle and unnerving photographic portraits. Surveyed in this comprehensive monograph, von Zwehl’s work forms a delicate and exquisitely detailed catalogue of human physiognomy. Her concise series of images are highly controlled both in terms of their minimalist aesthetic and the exacting conditions she imposes on her subjects. The portraits reveal not the conscious projection of an identity but a space between the subject’s private and thoughtful world and their public appearance.

Edited by Rebecca Drew, this Photoworks Monograph features essays by Joanna Lowry and Darian Leader, an interview with the artist by Charlotte Cotton and an introduction by David Chandler.
