CRAIG OWENS PHOTOGRAPHY EN ABYME PDF

At a superficial reading, it appears to be a standard image of a party scene, but as one looks at it in more detail, the viewer becomes aware that. Psychological and sociological details are thus displaces by the network of internal relationships between subject, mirror and other, which structures the image. Owens, , The image shows two couples and three other people. So, the photographer is part of the image, despite not being visible. The strange duplications and reflected connections extend much further than this, but only add detail to the argument.

Owens, , The image shows two couples and three other people. So, the photographer is part of the image, despite not being visible. The strange duplications and reflected connections extend much further than this, but only add detail to the argument. The point is that the mirror references the analogical definition of the photograph as a mirror of reality.

Because the mirror image doubles the subjects — which is exactly what the photograph itself does — it functions as a reduced internal image of the photograph.

The mirror reflects not only the subject depicted, but also the entire photograph. It tells us in a photograph what a photograph is — en abyme. However, there is more to it than that.

He theorises that in this zone, there is the possibility of producing new, creative art. It is a complex lecture, and I probably do not need to go into more detail than that for the purposes of this post. In my next post, I will look at some photographers who use mirrors in this way, and consider the test images I have taken so far.

Photography "en abyme"

This is an extract of an long essay on the work of photographer Nicolas Grospierre. It will appear in a book surveying his practice that will be published in They rely on drawing and occasionally model-making to act as a kind of intermediary between an idea and its realisation. One fantasy which accompanies much contemporary architecture today is that of folded or warped structures made from vast sheets of material. Folds and cuts give the enchanting illusion of immediacy and simplicity despite the complex calculations and feats of engineering which are required to achieve these effects. Lacking the telltale shadows of aerial photography, the mosaics of concrete and glass textures are emphatically flat.
