Contemporary photographers analyse – on quite different levels and scale – the experience of work, corporate culture, (un)employment and office life today. Visual sociology and new documentary photography are overlapping with major social areas. The photobooks assembled in this cahier are the result of long-term research, which is analytical in nature. The distanced approach and careful observation of aspects of daily life, work areas, and domestic spaces, driven by the so-called ‘archival impulse’ in contemporary art, has been defined as ‘conceptual documentary’.
