‘Atget was emphatically not an artist, yet he worked incessantly for 40
years and left some 10,000 photos. “Don’t put my names on it, these are simply documents I make”, he said.’

‘Odermatt has never considered himself an artist. Originally trained as
a baker and confectioner, he has said that – unlike photography – “the
manual work of mixing, shaping and presenting baked goods and sweets was
a truly creative endeavour”‘.

In the latest issue of frieze Jennifer Higgie looks at the work of Swiss
police photographer Arnold Odermatt and Kate Bush reflects on accidental
art of Eugene Atget, E.J.Bellocq and Enrique Metinides.

Other features include Jorg Heiser’s exploration the paper world of
Thomas Demand’s photographs and films, plus Brian Dillon on scientific
photography, Kristin M.Jones on Jitka Hanzlova, Bert Rebhandl on Jun
Yang and Alex Farquharson on the strange world of Morton Bartlett.

In the front section Tom Morton visits the Roland Barthes exhibition in
Paris, Brian Dillon looks into the history of photo booth imagoes, Dan
Fox listens to Edgard Varese and Will Bradley celebrates the life of
Giovanni Intra. And of course, extensive coverage of reviews from around the
world.
