This is photography!

February 20, 2017

From "A lecture on photography on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Fotomuseum Winterthur", it could be deduced photography is one or some other thing depending upon "spatially speaking, "temporally speaking", "semiotically speaking", "speaking in terms of the theory of perception and of epistemology", and finally "speaking in terms of world view".

But that answers just nothing. So, if continuing reading: "Photography draws its representational power from its paradoxically dual nature", or "And the question of photography's truth", then you feel farther and farther from any understanding about what a piece of paper with some image on, coming from a camera could consist on.

Yes, I spent a lot of of time on that. That's why I know what is not photography.
