Included are Gregory Halpern’s Californian waking dream “ZZYZX”; Vanessa Winship’s peripatetic exercise in empathy “she dances on Jackson”; the human assemblages of Curran Hatleberg’s “Lost Coast”; Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa’s rich and multitudinous “One Wall a Web”; the mortality-tinged America of Richard Choi’s “What Remains”; RaMell Ross’ visionary documentary work “South County”; the collaborative project “Index G” by Emanuele Bruti & Piergiorgio Casotti; and Kristine Potter’s disorientating exploration of the American landscape and masculinity in “Manifest.” The book also includes essays by Paul Graham, Rebecca Bengal, RaMell Ross, and Ian Penman.

You can purchase the book from the ICP Shop when you visit the exhibition or online at shop.icp.org

On March 30, join photographers Vanessa Winship, Gregory Halpern, Emanuele Brutti and Piergiorgio Casotti, and “But Still, It Turns” essayist Rebecca Bengel for an online discussion about the projects featured in the book as part of ICP Presents—The Rules Are Broken: A Year in Imagemaking.

But Still, It Turns: A manifesto for photography by Paul Graham

"Without giving in to the temptation to the artifice of the studio or to the manipulation of images, these projects go beyond the traditional idea of documentary as we know it. They capture the nuances of a photographic form that originates from the attention to the knots and tangles of life."

Read more about our current exhibition "But Still, It Turns" in this interview with Vogue Italia: https://www.vogue.it/fotografia/article/but-still-it-turns-a-manifesto-for-photography-by-paul-graham

We talked with Paul Graham about his vision as curator for But Still, It Turns, a book and an exhibition featuring the work of 9 contemporary artists portraying the world as-it-is.
