Melinda Gibson's series 'The Photograph as Contemporary Art' adheres to this theory, quite literally. She 'sticks things together' – in this case, sliced-up images culled directly from the pages of Charlotte Cotton's seminal book, The Photograph as Contemporary Art, which has graced the reading lists of nearly every academic institution offering a degree in photography since its publication in 2004.
