The Concept of Non-Photography (English and French Edition)

The Concept of Non-Photography (English and French Edition)

François Laruelle


Myriads of negatives inform of the area, talking between themselves, constituting an unlimited dialog, filling a photosphere that's positioned nowhere. yet one unmarried photograph is sufficient to exhibit the true that every one photographers aspire someday to catch, with out ever fairly succeeding in doing so. however, this actual cohabits in detail with negatives, with clichés as embedded in our lives as they're imperceptible. photos are the thousand flat features of an ungraspable identification that merely shines - and infrequently very faintly - via whatever else. What extra is there to a photograph than a curious and prurient look? And but it's also a desirable secret.

The thought of Non-Photography develops a rigorous new taking into account the photo in its relation to technological know-how, philosophy and paintings, and introduces the reader to the entire key ideas of Laruelle's 'non-philosophy'.
