What is a photograph?

I recently came across the information about this very interesting exhibition 'What is a photograph?'

'Organized by ICP Curator Carol Squiers, What Is a Photograph? explores the range of creative experimentation that has occurred in photography since the 1970s. This major exhibition brings together 21 emerging and established artists who have reconsidered and reinvented the role of light, color, composition, materiality, and the subject in the art of photography.'

I am trying to get hold of the exhibition book to read the essays written by Carol Squiers, Geoffrey Batchen, Hito Steyerl, and George Baker which are not accessible online, but it is not cheap...There is tough a list of the featured artist available online, which is a great source of new names I have never heard about and have to look closer at:

Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, Liz Deschenes, Adam Fuss, Owen Kydd, Floris Neusüss, Marlo Pascual, Sigmar Polke, Eileen Quinlan, Jon Rafman, Gerhard Richter, Mariah Robertson, Alison Rossiter, Lucas Samaras, Travess Smalley, David Benjamin Sherry, Kate Steciw, Artie Vierkant, James Welling, Christopher Williams, and Letha Wilson
