Some photos are haunting, some breathtaking; some are illuminating, and some are beautiful. And some photos--as those of us who have ever been on the internet know--are downright hilarious. But humor has often been on the sidelines of photography scholarship. With this book, Louis Kaplan remedies this, gathering together over one hundred images in a revealing look at the way photographers--from the very beginning of photography in the nineteenth century--have found so much amusement at the ends of their lenses. Kaplan introduces readers to a key set of genres in photographic humor, showing how humor is often tied to serious topics such as our identity, social situations, and--yes--death. He offers a fascinating range of examples, from stereographic domestic comedies to biting political satire, from conceptual artistic pratfalls to surrealist humour noir, and from trick photography to decisively hilarious moments in photojournalism. In doing so, he brings together works by renowned photographers--including Jacques Henri Lartigue, Elliott Erwitt, Weegee, Cindy Sherman, and Martin Parr--as well as those by your everyday photoshopper. The result is a rich collection of the witty, the absurd, and the uproarious.

New perspectives on humor within photography Despite the ubiquitous presence of photographic humor in art and popular media, the phenomenon has as yet received very little scholarly attention. Focusing on staged humor rather than on comic effects of snapshot photography, this volume brings together leading scholars in the field addressing humor performed in front of the camera, often specifically created for the camera, and the performative joke-work done by the medium itself. A first section explores how photography, due to its “shattering” qualities, turns into a privileged medium for eliciting humorous effects and how humor can be discerned within the photographic event. A second section discusses the toolbox of photographic trickery (photomontage, double exposure and cinematic movement) that allows photography to mock itself. The book closes with a section on photographic wit in conceptual art, both in canonized and more locally distinct practices. With artists’ pages from Paulien Oltheten, Lieven Segers and David Helbich

"From Dada to Fluxus and Conceptual art to the 1990s, humour is often at the heart of art as much as a visual strategy as an intellectual process. Based on an exhibition, this anthology does not try to illustrate the grotesque, the satirical, or the comic, but to separate the mechanisms of humour. Since Freud, humour is generally envisaged as a manifestation of the unconscious, like a kind of negotiation with repressed elements or collective fears. It is this subversive and social role of humour that is the subject of enquiry by artists such as Vito Acconci, Anna & Bernhard Blume, John Bock, Olaf Breuning, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Fischli & Weiss, Martin Kippenberger, Peter Land, Piero Manzoni, John Miller, Bruce Nauman, Martin Parr, Sigmar Polke and Jean-Frâedâeric Schnyder"--Publisher.
