Jean Baudrillard: Photographies 1985-1998

 

 

This book presents Baudrillard´s photos together with his collected texts on the theory of photography.

 

 

 

 

“But the photographic event resides in the confrontation between the object and the lens, and in the violence that this confrontation provokes. The photographic act is a duel. It is a dare launched at the object and a dare of the object in return. Everything that ignores this confrontation is left to find refuge in the creation of new photographic techniques or in photography’s aesthetics. These are easier solutions.” Jean Baudrillard (https://journals.uvic.ca/index.php/ctheory/article/view/14605/5462)
