Photography and reality are inextricably linked but, whether one is being photographed, making a photograph, or looking at a photograph, photography is an act of the imagination. In nine original essays, art historians and cultural theorists break with photographic tradition to explore the crucial role of the imagination in photography from nineteenth-century studio portraiture to twenty-first-century digital innovations. Drawing on the twenty-nine exhibitions of Le Mois de la Photo a Montreal 2005, "Image & Imagination" features the work of fifty contemporary artists from Canada, Australia, the United States, France, England, Haiti, and Japan, including Alain Bublex, Michel Campeau, Destiny Deacon, Evergon, David Hlynsky, Tracey Moffat, Shana and Robert ParkeHarrison, Lynne Marsh, Polixeni Papapetrou, Martin Parr, Romona Ramlochand, Carolee Schneemann, Michael Snow, and Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie.
