Photogenesis: Brokering World

Peter Burleigh

From their inception, the nexus of practices that later became named photography were characterised as being the production of images “impressed by Nature’s hand.” It was a technology seemingly without want of human agency—albeit one where the earliest full proclamation of photography, published by Henry Talbot in a scurry to claim the priority of his “art of photogenic drawing�...

A Double Capture of Body and Life: Deleuze, Bacon, Sauka

‘Hippies use side door’: l’humorisme comme précurseur sombre

Natascia Tosel
