What are young photographers up to in the twenty-first century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on or reject tradition? Are they busy in the darkroom or the computer lab – or both?
The reGeneration project – the broadest and most enterprising survey of its kind – has set out to discover answers to these intriguing questions, previewing the work of young photographers who may well emerge as some of the finest artists of their generation. Following on from the success of reGeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow curators at the world-renowned Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne selected the most promising candidates from some 700 entries submitted by 120 of the world’s top photography schools in thirty countries.
This remarkable book showcases the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of the eighty chosen photographic artists. With over 200 superb images, it proves that the art of photography is alive and well, and that practitioners of extraordinary talent are already well on their way to making their mark.

About the Publisher
Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission was to create a ‘museum without walls’ and to make accessible to a large reading public the world of art and the research of top scholars. To reflect its international outlook the name for the company linked the rivers flowing through London and New York, represented in its logo by two dolphins symbolizing friendship and intelligence, one facing east, one west, suggesting a connection between the Old World and the New. Today, still an independent, family-owned company, Thames & Hudson is one of the world’s leading publishers of illustrated books with over 2,000 titles in print. They publish high-quality books across all areas of visual creativity: the arts (fine, applied, decorative, performing), architecture, design, photography, fashion, film and music, and also archaeology, history and popular culture.
