When we talk about contemporary photography, we need to understand that it refers to more than a particular period of time. Contemporary photography is a genre in and of itself – and like every other genre, certain photographers working within it have made deep contributions to it.
Contemporary photography is usually known for a vast amount of imagery produced after the 1970s. Over the past couple of decades, technology and the availability of broader formats has defined much of what contemporary photography is and isn't. Perhaps the most important thing we can say about technology and formats is color photography, digital manipulation and capabilities, as well as fine printing techniques are key.
