imon Baker Curator of Photography at Tate Modern has put together a highly engaging exhibition that shows the work of over 50 photographers and explores the relationship between photography and performance. It is packed with humour irony and vulnerability. In the light of this exhibition the fascination we have today with the Selfie is not perhaps as shallow as it might first seem they can reveal more about us our world and our actions than we think. A photo of the London Eye is enhanced for us when we are captured in it perhaps even more so when we take it ourselves. At this point we no longer just have a picture of a something memorable or evidence we were there too but that we performed there and enjoyed it - extended our arm or selfie-stick smiled and snapped In the 1960s artists Yves Klein and Yayoi Kusama initially began taking photographs of their art performances documenting their work before realising that in fact the photography was becoming an integral facet of it. Through the work of Lee Friedlander we can see how the photographer appears to gradually notice himself as a shadow on the pavement or a reflection in a window in his images. Over the years that follow this self-inclusion becomes as important if not more important than the world he initially set out to capture.
