Jan Dibbets' dissenting and unashamedly biased 'History of Another Photography' offers nothing less than a reinterpretation of the entire history of art photography, arguing that scientific photography was the realm where the medium's real innovations happened. "It was the scientists," says Dibbets, "who produced really great stuff. Scientific photography encouraged a freer, more outgoing use of the medium." Dibbets goes on to draw a line upon which he sets the names of all the photographers he considers as real artists – or at least all the photographs he considers as works of art – from the invention of the medium up to the present day.
