How Photography Changed Philosophy

Rubinstein, Daniel (2022) How Photography Changed Philosophy. Routledge History of Photography . Routledge, UK. ISBN 9780367694227

Type of Research: Book
Creators: Rubinstein, Daniel

By analysing the philosophical lineage of notions of time, being, light, exposure, image, and representation, this book argues that photography is the visual manifestation of the philosophical account of how humans encounter beings in the present.

Daniel Rubinstein argues that traditional understandings of photography are determined by the notions of likeness and correspondence, and this limits our understanding of photographic materiality. It is suggested that the photographic image must be closely read not for the objects, events and situations represented in it, but for the insights it affords into the structure of contemporary consciousness.

The book will be of interest to scholars working in photography, media studies, philosophy, fine art, and art history.
