The Face. A Photographic Moment

14.70

This publication accompanies the two parts of THE FACE exhibition, entitled In Search of the Emblematic and Towards a Capture of the Photographic. The works presented are reproduced in the middle of the book. Adopting as their point of departure the photographic momentum resulting from the first photograph of the Shroud of Turin, the authors explore a number of fundamental principles of photography in order to reexamine the notion of the photographic, and discuss the gaze, the Other, on which photography depends to reveal itself before, during and after the actual shot, as well as the double necessity for mediation and mediatization. Also dealt with are the phenomenology of funeral rituals, and photography’s particular propensity to push up against limits.
