Discover Edvard Munch’s investigative and poetic photographs of himself and his surroundings. The Experimental Self: The Photography of Edvard Munch demonstrates the fundamentally experimental nature of the artist's photographic practice. As a photographer, Munch embraced the freedom provided by the amateur position, and the unpredictable aspects of analogue photographic technology. By playfully approaching his own image in picture after picture, Munch extends his explorations of selfhood in other media through photography. The resulting photographs provide unique access to Munch's radical artistic vision, which this book studies through eminent essays by Patricia G. Berman, Tom Gunning and MaryClaire Pappas.
