By 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 each one photographers aspire sooner or later to trap, with out ever rather succeeding in doing so. however, this genuine cohabits in detail with negatives, with clichés as embedded in our lives as they're imperceptible. images are the thousand flat points of an ungraspable id that purely shines - and infrequently very faintly - via anything else. What extra is there to a photograph than a curious and prurient look? And but it's also a desirable secret.
The idea 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 all the key options of Laruelle's 'non-philosophy'.
