    3 Photographs really are experience captured, and camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood. Treacherous; used as describing photographic images 5 But since it is, to begin with, a printed, smooth object, a photograph loses much less of its essential quality when reproduced in a book than a painting does. 5 The sequence in which the photographs are to be looked at is pro...

    p. 1 As Walt Whitman gazed down the democratic vistas of culture, he tried to see beyond the difference between beauty and ugliness, importance and triviality. ...... All facts, even mean ones, are incandescent in Whitman's America - that ideal space, made real by history, where "as they emit themselves facts are showered with light". p.2 In photography's early decades, photographs were expecte...

    poiuny ("STILLNESS")

    Recently, photography has become almost as widely practiced an amusement as sex and dancing - which means that, like every mass art form, photography is not practiced by most people as an art. It is mainly a social rite, a defense against anxiety, and a tool of power. p.5 Taking photographs has set up a chronic voyeuristic relation to the world which levels the meaning of all events. p.7 Althou...

    P5 In another version of its utility, the camera record justifies. A photograph passes for incontrovertible proof that a given thing happened. The picture may distort; but there is always a presumption that something exists, or did exist, which is like what's in the picture. P6 While a painting or prose description can never be other than a narrowly selective interpretation, a photograph can be...

    睡美 (A slowburn)

    终于讲到安东尼奥尼的中国,比较当时七十年代的中国极权统治文化下,对"the good" 的推崇,对摄影的零容忍。在资本主义消费社会,another kind of dictatorship: "the interesting" “photography in our sense has no place in their society." social change is replaced by a change in images. The freedom to consume a plurality of images and good is equated with freedom itself. The narrowing of free political c...

    睡美 (A slowburn)

    摄影作品(那些fine art的,和那些商业用途的、传媒用途的、有具体记录、传媒、昭示价值的,总之不那么fine的,一起)进入美术馆展览之后, In most uses of the camera, the photograph's naive or descriptive function is paramount. But when viewed in their new context, the museum or gallery, photographs cease to be "about" their subjects in the same direct or primary way; they become studies in the possibi...   (6回应)

    睡美 (A slowburn)

    桑塔格评Diane Arbus的摄影, harshly. 她认为Arbus拍人像正面盯着镜头的特写,表明她已经跟被拍摄对象,那些怪人,是“朋友”,得到他们的信任,然而与此同时,她的作品不传递任何compassion。 浏览图像、影像、新闻里不同于自己经验的怪人和事而感觉不被冒犯和挑战,这种calmness将付出代价。这不会带来解放,而是一种见怪不怪,因为不想被其他人认为幼稚天真。 cynical大行其道。 这种见怪不怪,想想精英学校学生,受过良好教...

    睡美 (A slowburn)

    Desire has no history - at least, it is experienced in each instance as all foreground, immediacy. It is aroused by archetypes and is, in that sense, abstract. But moral feelings are embedded in history, whose personae are concrete, whose situations are always specific. Thus, almost opposite rules hold true for the use of the photograph to awaken desire and to awaken conscience. The images that...

    林莫 (Roma o morte)

    To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. One situation where people are switching from bullets to film is the photographic safari that is replacing the gun safari in East Africa. The hunters have Hasselblads instead of Winchesters; inste...
