Edited by Ken Miller, and due for release in September 2009, SHOOT: Photography of the Moment presents the work of twenty-six photographers whose work focuses on capturing a moment rather than elaborate lighting setups or controlled, manufactured scenarios. Employing the most basic photographic tools—a single-lens reflex camera and natural light——they must rely on their instincts and their ability to interact with a situation to create a dynamic image. SHOOT documents the influence of an older generation of art photographers, such as the legendary Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillmans, and expands on a younger generation of photographers, including Tim Barber and J.H. Engström, and Glynnis McDaris (**AND MICHAEL SCHMELLING**), to show how this style has gained traction and influence. With a preface by Stephen Shore and introduction by Penny Martin, Shoot is a remarkable survey of the most innovative contemporary photographers working today.

SHOOT is also being honored with an event October 14 at the FOAM Fotografiemuseum in Amsterdam and will debut in Asia with an exhibition in Tokyo at Parco opening on November 26.
