About this product
- DescriptionThis book is the product of a unique collaboration between the Israeli artist and philosopher Aim Deuelle Luski and Ariella Azoulay. In their long-standing working relationship, they research how to theorize the structure of the contemporary scopic regime and to open a space for its civil transformation. On this occasion, Azoulay interprets a unique series of cameras built by Deuelle Luski, along with photographs taken by these cameras. Unlike conventional, vertical photography, Deuelle Luski's cameras seek to generate new sets of relations between the camera and the world. Azoulay's text unfolds four different short histories of problems in photography, each of which deconstructs what otherwise might appear as a coherent photographic regime, yet which is based solely on principles of sovereignty and possession. Through and with Deuelle Luski's project Azoulay seeks to potentialize the history of photography, to recover long-forgotten, unmaterialized possibilities. The book contains one hundred images and a conversation between the author and the artist.
