Fiction or Other Accounts of Photography

0.00

This work deals with the fictional dimension of photography and the sometimes sly relationships that a medium such as this, so heavily inflected by the real, can have to the world of the imagination. It is not a question here of examining the narrative systems that photography can put to such good use, but of looking at how it manages, often in an adulterated state, to allow this shift toward the imaginary, to deploy this slightly off-centre figure so essential to fiction. The contributors adopt a variety of approaches to the dilemma of fiction/photography.
