Peter Burleigh

about the author

Peter Burleigh teaches English culture, language, and linguistics at the University of Basel, and critical and aesthetic theory at the HGK, Basel. His interests lie in the theories and histories of photography, and forms of visual representation. He is currently working on a post-Deleuzian framing of photography: while exploiting Deleuze’s conceptual toolbox, he attempts to undo Deleuze’s scepticism towards photography, in particular thinking how the graphic paradigm can be replaced by genesis. His most recent essay appears in the European Month of Photography 2014 catalogue.
