AbstractThe past few years have witnessed a renewed interest in vintage and vernacular photography and photographic archives in general. This increase in attention is clearly reflected within the arts. More and more photographers/artists blend their own creations with existing photographs or use vintage photography and old techniques as a basis for new works of art. This article highlights some of the finest examples of this artistic practice, by artists such as Mark Klett, Simon Norfolk, Shimon Attie, Sally Mann and Broomberg and Chanarin. Each one of them, in his or her own way, revisits history using early photography as a point of access.
