A major artistic phenomenon at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, contemporary photography is not limited to a current of contemporary art. Photography opens up to the general category of the image. It concerns experimental research at the time of the virtual, alternative forms of information at the time of the new media, the history of modernism at the time when the status of the work of art was being questioned; but also the question of the document or, conversely, that of the staged image and, finally, the current of a photograph recomposed after the digital rupture. This essay, which is widely illustrated, explores this moment that begins on the threshold of the 1980s and extends to us by bringing together productions that are certainly different, but all inhabited by the same concern for ethics. How do we see, what are we looking at, what is the division between fiction and reality? Imposing the stability of its reflected forms in a world of blurred messages, contemporary photography is the name of a community of creative practices that places photography at the heart of the sensibility of our time.
