Representative art typically has one thing alongside its enlarged typed dictionary definition. There is even standing in for another. A painted surface is made to represent a a portrait of the great NGV donor Alfred Felton with his actual real thing — say, a person, their cane or their pipe. In my collection walking stick stuck to its frame laughs.

This brings us to my idea works I get things to stand in for themselves and for my ideas. The Kosuth work and Felton portrait me. Sometimes I come up with a possible constraint and then go are very much about direct and directive representation; however, searching for things that variously hold that idea — whether they when I redeploy them, and many of the things in my so-called like it or not.

The biggest new collection work here is called The Museum of The things I assemble, then, are set a new task. It is full of my things and the objects I collect are past their use-by date. They are recently things from the NGV Collection, each of which has been found redundant or set in their ways. I ask the objects and images to do something else altogether. The visitors play their part in trying to think through how each thing fits in the puzzle that I have set. The game is to think through how these things now fit together.

Visitors get to test their wits against the collection, if you will. So if they see a nice old Kodak photograph of an aircraft tower in a photo-collection work titled Photography and air, —17 pp. They might have to ponder a while longer as to why the snap of the kid with the rifle is in there … Hopefully they will guess that it must be an air rifle.

They might also wonder why some things make it into this category when they equally and easily could be included in another. MF: What have been some of the surprising meanings that different way. Sometimes things suggest a categorical constraint institution acquiring such objects, or is it a collaboration with a view is somehow a different prospect. Their original meaning remains the audience once the work is displayed? Have you accounted stem glass was once a politically charged object but that meaning intact, of course.

How do us of that story. Laurie Benson, Curator of International , it represents a machine for inhaling and exhaling air in the you consider the many and varied personal responses to objects In general, I rethink the things and largely ignore the stories Art at the NGV, showed me a work that had been revealed under form of smoke. If a thing — an object or an another work, as well as works with pictures on both sides of the and Museum of holes, —17, in this exhibition.

The things that the NGV has in its permanent collection or that is affected by the air, or are shown in a passing car, that Searching through the racks with Laurie there were surprises a puzzle and each of these things being pieces of it. If only I could are there for a clear set of reasons.

Those reasons have little or might get them a place in one of my works. So, when I combine them with my It is definitely a collaboration of sorts. I think a museum such as a very fragile work wrapped in tissue to keep the paint solve the puzzle. If the curator selects well, the attached to a John Perceval painting that made us both double or at least in part, trying to make sense of things. We invent games or of a particular artist.

They have quite a set task, and become things are very obliging. This quality, this ability to typify and take! And yes, the artist placed it there. The NGV stores that we can solve to make the incoherent appear coherent. To do quite set in their ways; or, at least, in the ways in which we are exemplify, however, must to some extent predetermine which are impeccable laughs. Museums are also always telling us things are suitable for acquisition.

Things are like worry beads for some of us, I guess. Critics and that their function is to tell stories. Strangely, because I find my own things to collect on eBay in this curators might be said to take part in this too laughs. Among other things, my collections typify the non-descript way, it was not too different a way of working.

After that, I went And yes, some things change meaning with time. I have a and the otherwise unremarkable object. Mind you, to be honest, through everything on display. On of my ideas in a peculiar and interesting way, or in more than because I did this with a specialist curator. I am always amused when visitors cannot tell my things were invited to make suggestions of works to include. This was meanings. Sometimes I did not actually meet PP: Yes, that is interesting.

But people loved seeing the painting at eye level, in the way that the object they suggested did. The are examples of this. In but I have applied a second constraint as a thread throughout the fact, when we put things into these newly configured categories exhibition. In every one of my collection works I have a thing or the works often let down their defences and we regard them a photo that could be in another of the collection works.

So, in differently and anew. But that is never why I include or exclude them. For example, the woman asleep or c. Perhaps New Holland, who after experiencing for two years the Luxuries the algorithms of shopping are effectively controlling my poetry. Because this is so galling to us, we can at least My friend and sometimes collaborator Rowan McNaught assume we have come some little way.

I think this page also has been very important in my thinking about this. For The Great reminds us that we have a dreadful past and a long way to go. This is not so much a collective memory generator as a data dream machine. Together they are expressed as a percentage. They are a machine for thinking through things. How do you feel about the fact that your the world. With these new arrangements we might see things a use and arrangement of works might disrupt those memories?

PP: The first collections that became works were the collections of suggested I purchase a cat door next laughs. The internet shuffles These qualities of things are different and remain so. They are images cut from the newspapers. Then there was 26 brown things, things for redistribution. The search engines function like poetic also simply things, of course. I am not saying they are equal, , which I bought from one shop on one day. I thought the constraints, generating unseen connections with visible results.

It is a bit like a recipe. As I read, I also used to collect quotes in categories. They were arranged under categories the ruins. Those to dissemble expectations or to milk a laugh from a few holy cows and his Arcades Project —40 , and I recognised this as a way of unconscious pathways set off on by particular and predetermined is not the point at all.

This said, I welcome the fact that these gathering the world in fragments. Perhaps this all is summed up by my collection- wonderful even, have fed back into how I rethink the way things Sometimes the things remain the same, but together, in based work titled The Collector, —17 pp. It is a novel about a photographer, a MF: You have described several literary sources as being highly their airs, remaining imperious or impervious to it all. Some pervert and a collector rolled into one laughs.

I realise my use of the term is rather selective gravitas in this tragicomic context. MF: Is your own collecting a critique of, tribute or attempt to and constraints on their writing. Can you discuss this further? Have you used any similar methods of constraint on your own but I do not think of what I do as curating proper. I had I do not usually include works that are recently made, or that p.

My influence and still is. Another entry into the museum has been eroded and elided a little, and not only by museum of course, but some works are driven by similar techniques. It is when I assemble and is a milk jug produced to commemorate the Jubilee, in , of King intervention.

Maybe I am So, as well as the levelling aspect I am very interested in assembling before you. Not the scientific stories that nineteenth-century into my collection works. One cannot collect without noticing collection Twenty-Six and One. The names, , is a collection of that a Goya etching, for example, is innumerably more valuable those things came and to which they once belonged. Yet in your MF: What did your first collections consist of, and what do your organising systems.

Yesterday I bought a snap of a dog on a deployments. Can you please talk about the scope veranda. There was a screen door behind the dog. You could just make her out. An advert shadow remains in shot. White library, —17, is a work alongside you on this vast project and watch the ways in collection of books with the word white in their titles. The whole which you have researched and compiled lists of works from the world unexpectedly sneaks into this work — from the banal to the NGV Collection that I am sure have never come together before extraordinary — from the racist to the reformist, and everything in an exhibition display.

This seems to imply that desire can never be fulfilled, together for the purposes of an exhibition. I feel that working and perhaps can only be kept at bay, and that is at the heart of with you on The Great Exhibition has also allowed me to work the obsession with collecting; the tension between endlessly differently than I would otherwise do on exhibitions and in a seeking things in categories that can never be completed. PP: It is a very different role. There is a comparative sense of ease.

PP: I may have stolen that laughs. It sounds like a quote I collected There is an inevitable overlap in the expressive and intellectual act along the way I think from Jean Baudrillard. Yes, the collector is of curating — in the sense of arranging by associative order — and insatiable — much like the camera and the internet.

Both set out to impose order in their productive, and that collection is consumption lived. There is an international collectors are making up for a personal sense of lack. It sounds and the curating game, as an art form — and to entropy. These rather tragic and a little desperate. Most serious collectors have artists actively make trouble for the idea of the collection. Benjamin figure, or a dandy of detritus or a Vermeer of the Perhaps the hoarder and the cleanliness freak are two sides vernacular, like, say Walker Evans.

My constraints are very of the same neurotic coin. Collecting is pleasurable in part different to those of a curator, and self-imposed, and I can because it is endless. The insatiable desire happily aligns with change them at will. Artists have it easy laughs. As an artist I can the impossibility of completion, and that is what collectors collapse and ignore hierarchies and introduce my own personal usually have to settle for. You have described recent projects connections of seemingly unrelated things placed within a in which you have united your own collection-based works with systematic constraint.

It is ironic that that shift makes these images so available MF: Laughs. The images also speak of the postcolonial condition, of PP: Finally you laugh! The camera has drunk all of this in. The internet objects, reproductions and presentations that all bore an has scanned it at random and we are left with this vast reflecting image of an eagle.

In an interview in , Broodthaers was pool. He described how the political uprisings recognition in the form of a typological ordering. What role does the artist course. It is rather like being a character in a novel, or Vladimir play in society? The collector finds things. Perhaps one of my There is something of the virus and the human comedy in all with them according to my interests.

The avalanche Despite all of the talk of systems and constraints, like all good contested area of very recent art historical thinking, labelled that Perecian idea of trying to grasp the world. Perhaps the is endless. At some stage, I suppose, I will step aside laughs. Then again, maybe I am role of the artist and the museum. The internet is, after clutching at straws laughs. I suspect it might well quietly attempt to incorporate some more political and larger in making collection-based works of art and rethinking the appear that I am a bit of a dilettante to some, but I prefer it that MF: You have joked that you are trying to put the dad joke into problems, as well as the whole gamut ranging from meta- collections of the museum, and the very ideas and possibil- way.

It is a technique I use to let me think to myself. I am not interested in merely activating public gallery of imagery. This smorgasbord of snaps is, after all, a world picture. I set out to rethink PP: Ha, yes. It is tragicomic I suppose. If sometimes that appears deflection.

These photographs are unhinged not only by the dispersion traditional ones or, more specifically, with state art institutions spectacular, so be it. I am interested of family archives but also by everything from the fall of the such as the NGV? I am interested in chance and the shuffle of things artists, like me, tend to aestheticise bureaucracy.

But my collection and how they might be found to rub up against systematic ordering works also make trouble for the set ideas we attach to things and the generation of ideas. They offer alternative in my search for things and in my trying to put them together expressive archiving strategies. I simply set aside the urge of in meaningful ways, and in how we might read these things the museum to tell the story of the culture through things in its differently.

If I find one thing, it necessarily through exemplary and extraordinary but redundant things. Occasionally that set gets disrupted by not my game. I am looking to give those things, and visitors, a leads down false paths. Often I put things in my eBay cart and the thumbnails of these images form a visual list running down the screen, which I spoke earlier about my idea of the technological unconscious mirror. I am interested in how one that one other thing.

The algorithms are largely set up to find likeminded sort of thing with things. This is much more the case on sites such as eBay, of Mamet dramatic comedy about a Mob mix-up in America. So, course, than other internet platforms.

Online stores are not an American film about an Italian situation. The first copy is on set up to lead me to things that are fixed in the world, but to VHS, the second is an Italian subtitled version and the third is a movable, purchasable things. Just as the utility of a museum DVD — so things change. But, as I woman keeps returning to the photo booth in different outfits, as said earlier, these algorithms set off chance encounters that any if she is a spy or simply someone who takes an active interest in Oulipo author would jump at.

The lateral elides with the literal. They could have been assembled by of questioning the exhibition process and history? They are fictitious in that they set off stories and that on your current approach? Are there any other contemporary their relationships or correspondences are devised, or made-up, artists or projects that you would like to mention? Other pairs of photographs set off fictions and non-fictions PP: Totally.

Then you notice a man walking past in the second them laughs. There is also Jules Verne. Feel free to interrupt. Allan Kaprow and Robert community galleries and town halls, among other venues. The vernacular snap reminds us that the camera is both room of a town hall it is different to when they are mixed in with a portal and a mirror. The photograph I like that the things can stand up in either platform.

They is, after all, a rubbing of light, be it in the form of a paper are arranged so that each item can be considered separately, and printout or a transfer of data. Photography is something of an then in relation to each other — people examine them similarly in act of displacement. A photograph is a record of what came both contexts.

In both environments we are pressed beliefs, the decisions and the default positions of the taker or to think about how we as viewers relate to them, how they relate the maker of the image, or of the buyer and seller, the discarder to us and how they relate to each other. My things also gain certain qualities, depending on how Photographers used to put photographs in albums and interestingly they hold the idea that I ask them to encapsulate and in boxes to be viewed and reviewed at will, like so many perform.

As to their legitimising, the museum does that, but my recollections. Images were made to be kept and revisited. And, when my lowly, humble were never made to be scanned and redistributed on eBay. The analogue vernacular snap is clearly already an which form the largest part of your vast archives. They include artefact. As a category, the snapshot is definitely in the order vernacular and domestic photographs in particular — a type of of the remnant.

There are millions of new vernacular photos photograph that has traditionally not been collected by museums being taken, but with the mass uptake of the digital and phone and galleries, and not, until recently, been featured in depth in camera, and new platforms of photo-sharing and storage, the the histories of photography.

It is quite literally an artefact. Those that are printed out are PP: Essentially I am interested in photography because of its remnants of remnants. But photography In a few short years these photos have been set adrift. Since is not a static medium and never has been. The snapshot is no I began seriously collecting snaps, this turn has become more longer quite what it was. Scores of millions of printed photographs have found Well, not exactly.

Its utility has always effected its peculiar qualities their way onto the internet. Millions of these have found their and its meaning. But some fundamentals remain. Photography way to eBay. Cut off from their reason for being, and from their is the medium of record.

Photography is, at its core, an indexical takers and original owners, the images await new homes, new medium. But For my generation the printed-out vernacular photograph as as Siegfried Kracauer observed, photography may also tear things a phenomenon remains very much in living memory; however, away from themselves, interrupting the things it records, and for someone who is twenty, these photographs have already in so doing shift and dismantle the truth of things. I am really become technological fossils.

If for my generation they are like looking for other little signs of meaning in the accumulation of heritage media, for the younger generation they are as removed details. I am after extra information. Gradually well as about the photograph as a record and a projection. I have I have come to know a little bit about the histories of vernacular one set of photos that unpacks the process. The first photograph photography, about both its technical aspects and as a form of shows a woman on the beach, taken by a man unbeknown to her.

You can see his shadow, and she is clearly unaware of the fact he Some odd things have been revealed to me. People used to is taking the shot. Then you see a bunch of images of her getting photograph their new car, their fridge and their television. Those herself groomed for the portrait. Finally, I have the portrait itself. People I would like to say it is the least interesting of the set of images, no longer bother recording such things for posterity, or for me but perhaps it is not.

People also used to photograph the transmission of Something else I have learnt is that the selfie is nothing new. I have photos taken off the television showing You can learn the exact same things about the peculiar and funerals of the Kennedys in France and in America; moon landings marvellous, and distinct, qualities of the medium from these broadcast in Germany and Japan below.

I am interested in photography per se. It also has a remarkable familiarity. We all think own search-engine logic that actually becomes part of the work. It is also at once evidentiary, There is a peculiar relationship between my eBay searching and propositional. Collecting found snaps a particular moment. The collecting quotes from novels, or things you overhear. For me it mouse is my camera.

My scrolling through the world of readymade is a form of collage. MF: Why domestic and vernacular photography? What have you learnt about the use world, and we can measure ourselves against them. Because of of photography through your years of internet searching? I also collect photographs from defunct newspaper PP: The feeling of having found an image worth buying is actually archives and some from cinema as well, which behave quite a form of re-taking the photograph. It also echoes a certain quality differently.

I try and avoid artfulness and mannerism and of photography: what Sophie Berrebi recently described as a affectation in my work. I'm also amused by the poetry of illogical and logical connections, MF: Why do you use eBay in particular to source your photo- of the faults and defaults of order and disorder and by what you graphs?

In fact, with vernacular photograph was to collect the world in the form of pictures. I had of all kinds: from a picture of double skulls rowing on a river sometimes engender nostalgia, of course. They had to be front-on portraits, though. I had archive photograph of a set of twins to a Hollywood still of a against them.

I certainly do not pine for the timeframe of the else in the form of a picture. I had collections double agent. There is a central room in The Great Exhibition things I collect. I have snaps of human of the show. Then again, all of these things are not old — there are snaps that digital age. I have are digital. There are, surprisingly, quite a few things that I have photography as a medium as much as it has changed the means of a nice collection of photos that people have damaged, stabbed MF: Is there an aspect of nostalgia at play in your work; for bought brand new; for example, the false fingernails and the its distribution and dissemination.

These changes have made us or torn pp. Sometimes I find one that seems too good to be true, such domestic, seen at home? Is it important to you for the viewer to directly relate to many of these things and to the photographs as as the archer whose portrait has been repeatedly pierced. We are all surprisingly and deeply sentimental in the face MF: You have talked about the photographs that you collect as Then there are those that are neatly cut out and, I assume, familiarity that comes with viewing these images?

Then I gradually assembled collections that were dialectic at a standstill. For Paris Peasant Basically, Benjamin thought you could read example, I was collecting cakes for a while. They were only the world best through constellations of recently redundant mildly interesting. Then I noticed that by proxy I had bought things. When I buy things, I their birthday cakes, or on the cakes belonging to other people usually go for the things that are no longer in use and that are laughs.

I thought that was a nice constraint. That collection neither kitsch nor cool. They are just stuff. The remnants and is called Blow, — Like so many of my collections, it could the leftovers. I am interested in things The more difficult-to-find categories are inevitably more that hold one of my ideas interestingly, rather than things that interesting to me now.

Although he used paper specially manufactured for the use of photographers, the textures of the paper fibres still remained a problem, resulting in an uneven tone in any positive print. He also used a yellow dye or bleach to colour in some of the shadow areas, to help bring out the details [Figure 2. These additions give his negatives a very distinctive appearance and tactility.

Painterly brushstrokes are apparent in their skies that are invisible in a positive print, where the black pigment registers only as a blank area, as nothingness. But it also underlines the fact that photography involves both taking and making, one more aspect of the medium that is often suppressed in histories devoted to it.

Julia Margaret Cameron was another inveterate experimenter, in her case using wet collodion glass-plate negatives. She was notorious for her unorthodox printmaking, leaving fingerprints and other imperfections in the albumen surface of the finished photograph or in the collodion on her negatives. But she also sometimes deliberately scratched her negatives to leave a halo inscribed over the head of one of her subjects , wrote in ink on the albumen print itself filling in lines from a letter being read by her subject , experimented with silhouette formats and photograms, smoked the back of a negative to produce the appearance of diaphanous clouds in the finished print, bleached a print to give its subject an unearthly radiance, employed composite printing where it suited her even combining photograms and camera images , and at least three times printed her negatives in reverse producing a more diffuse version of the image as a result 20 [Figure 2.

In short, she was always working creatively with her medium, and especially her negatives, with an eye towards enhancing the artistic potential of her prints. Throughout the twentieth century, professional photographers continued to add pigment to or otherwise embellish their negatives if they thought it would improve the eventual print.

But some photographers took such interventions to an extreme, as if to ref lect on the substance of the very medium being employed. In line with Surrealist thinking, the distortion of the negative, resulting in a molten and contorted image in any positive print, allowed for the play of 30 Inventing negatives FIGURE 2.

In , for example, a glass negative coated with a crazed multi-coloured emulsion made by Karl-Heinz Hargesheimer, or Chargesheimer, in the —53 period was shown, backlit by an LED light, at the booth at Paris Foto for Galerie Julian Sander.

In the mids, the Japanese artist Shigeru Onishi made a similar claim. Varying the temperature of his developing solutions between 8 and 80 degrees, and intentionally discolouring his prints with acetic acid, Onishi dissolved the usual spatial-temporal parameters we associate with photographs, turning them instead into unstable and f luid entities.

To that end, both Daido Moriyama and Takuma Nakahira sometimes poured boiling water over their negatives to make them darker and more grainy, producing photographic imagery that was captured quite literally in the process of disintegration.

A late example of such a process, the instant film found in the Polaroid SX camera, introduced in , incorporated a lightsensitive emulsion, protected under a layer of Mylar, that remained wet and malleable for up to 24 hours after exposure. Working in his kitchen in New York, Lucas Samaras exploited this technical quirk to manipulate the emulsion with a stylus or his fingers while his pictures, invariably of himself, were still developing.

Between and , Samaras produced large numbers of these colourful psychedelic-looking self-portraits, mutilating himself and photography with equal enthusiasm. These photographs come with a poignant backstory, involving a fictional photographer living in that city who reportedly damaged his postcard negatives as corresponding parts of the city were destroyed during the civil war of the s. This automatic association of photograph and world, as if the f lesh of one is an extension of the other, lends a particular psychological weight to any deliberate deformation of a negative.

Of the over photographs by Herschel in the collection of the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University, only four are made with a camera. See also Martin Barnes ed. Linnaeus Tripe was another English photographer working in India who extensively reworked his waxed-paper negatives with pigment.

Tripe applied waterbased pigment to his negatives in thin layers, allowing him to evoke clouds and other atmospheric effects in a convincing manner. These additions allowed Tripe to convey different kinds of clouds but also to correct the appearance of overexposed foliage. In this last case, he followed the example of art teachers like James Duffield Harding, who, in his lesson about drawing oak trees, advocated using short strokes to mimic the look of leaves.

Thanks to Yasufumi Nakamori for bringing this artist to my attention. The contemporary Australian photographer Justine Varga, for example, subjects her colour negatives to both a prolonged exposure to light and a series of physical and chemical abrasions, all in an effort to indexically record certain aspects of her everyday existence.

Dated —12 to indicate this extended duration, the print reproduces this experience in terms of an array of mottled hues marred by splotches of darker or lighter pigment, the whole framed by the notched outlines of the piece of film from which it has been derived. As one commentary has suggested, By overexposing the negative, Varga surrenders the image to what is ordinarily considered a technical error. A mistake that usually results in the obscuration of a subject has become the desired means of representation.

The degradation of the negative has become a compositional feature. A deliberately incendiary story on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald led to a number of others, quickly spreading via social media all across the globe.

Having left these traces of her hand on this light-sensitive surface, she also, at my request, rubbed some of her saliva on the film, doubling her bodily inscription there. I then processed the film and printed it at large scale. But every negative is affected by light in this same way, to greater or lesser degrees.

From the moment it is exposed to light, that negative is spent. In his exhibition catalogue for the Louvre, Memoirs of the Blind: The Self-Portrait and Other Ruins, Jacques Derrida studiously links the three themes of his title—blindness, self-portraiture and ruins—declaring them to be inseparable aspects of the creative act. For something strange seems to have happened to her negative for Maternal Line during its long exposure.

These were then turned into a shared visibility in the darkroom, where the negative was translated, through the process of trial and error previously described, into a As it happens, Maternal Line is another negative print, its tones having been re-reversed during the complicated process of its production not that you would know that, unless you had studied the negative closely. The finished photograph is of a size that immerses the body of the viewer.

This matters. Decentring its observers, refusing to give them a singular resting place and therefore insisting they take an active role in its decipherment, Maternal Line turns this looking into an intimate, even subtle, experience, an interactive back and forth to be absorbed over time rather than in an instant.

In other words, the perception of 38 Photogenic drawings this photograph replicates the duration and economy of exchange involved in its production. Although unfamiliar to many of its critics, this kind of treatment of a negative, this photogenic drawing process, has a long history. Varga here arranged for some telling marks to be made on a standard piece of light-sensitive negative film, turning that negative into a photo-graphic. Photographer friends like Adalbert Cuvelier may have assisted them to master the process.

The artist would scratch a drawing through a collodion-covered glass plate, using an etching needle, stick, or even the blunt end of a paintbrush. The brushstrokes became a visible element of the final image, given form by a few incised lines [Figure 3. Once it had dried, this plate would be placed face-down on a sheet of light-sensitive paper, usually salt paper, and exposed to the sun. To achieve a varied effect, the glass plate could also be f lipped over or a second plate of glass could be inserted between image and paper, producing a softer interpretation of the original image thanks to the refraction of the light rays through the glass.

The end result of all this was a contact-printed photograph of the drawing or painting. Sometimes a plate would be reworked, just as in more traditional matrices, and then printed again, allowing for a second state of the image to be circulated. The English caricaturist George Cruikshank drew a portrait of the photographer Peter Wickens Fry by scratching through an albumen-coated glass plate on December 19, A single albumen print taken from this matrix has survived, very likely made by Fry himself.

The image shows Fry looking through his glasses at a piece of paper, presumably the very photograph we too are beholding. How very curious! Each of these photographs consisted of portraits of Dora Maar, some showing her in profile and some frontal. Some of them also bear the impression of a piece of muslin placed between the glass and the gelatin silver paper during exposure, one of a number of interventions undertaken during the printing process. The photograph titled Portrait of Dora Maar has even been rendered in negative tones.

The end result of all this work in the darkroom is a series of ambiguous photographic surfaces, dense with implied textures and painterly effects, and offering a form of portraiture simultaneously hand-made and mechanical. One of these figures was the Anglo-American poet W. Auden, who, like Lye, was a refugee from the war in Europe.

In , Lye made four separate portraits of Auden. How exactly these portraits were made remains a matter of speculation. It seems 40 Photogenic drawings likely he first made Auden lie with his head on a sheet of photographic paper and then exposed him to light from a number of angles, leaving behind a blurred white silhouette on a black background.

The negative thereby becomes a palimpsestic object, and thus a metaphor for memory itself. And so is the practice of portraiture. Maternal Line becomes, in other words, a photograph of and by two women that defies that judgmental scrutiny of their appearance so familiar to women everywhere. Such a request already depends on a certain intimacy and trust between the artist and her subject. It necessarily speaks to a quite specific kind of relationship between them.

Since 42 Photogenic drawings man is unable to create—that is, to constitute from an apparition, from the impalpable, a solid thing, or to make a thing out of nothing—every Daguerreian operation would catch, detach, and retain, by fixing onto itself, one of the layers of the photographed body. It follows that for that body, and with every repeated operation, there was an evident loss of one of its specters, which is to say, of a part of its constitutive essence.

The pressure of the stylus is answered by its other, a relief sculpture induced from human f lesh. Notes 1 The colour negative also has a history. Kodak introduced Kodachrome 35mm slide film in , but it was not until that the first colour negative film, Kodacolor film for prints, was announced. As with black-and-white negatives, Kodacolor negatives are based on a system of opposites, with the chromogenic hues reversed into their respective complementary colours.

The negative film itself typically came with an overall red-orange cast due to an automatic colour-masking feature to defy inherit deficiencies in the image-forming dyes that ultimately results in improved colour reproduction. Is it a Portrait? Unable to be fixed, the early experiments of Tom Wedgwood and Humphry Davy survive only as textual ghosts, described in an journal article but otherwise invisible to us.

These first photographs are truly palimpsests then, erased inscriptions present only as historical memories, a lost presence an imagined blackened surface inhabited by their complete absence from the visual record. See also Elizabeth Glassman and Marilyn F. Some of these cameras also included a window at the rear of Photogenic drawings 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 45 the instrument through which an operator could scratch or scrawl a caption or message directly onto the negative with a metal tool.

This allowed the photographic print to include both a camera-made image and a hand-written text in the same emulsion. For other photographers, negatives have offered a chance for a demonstration of technical virtuosity. Although he had pioneered the use of waxed-paper negatives, for example, Le Gray chose to use collodion-on-glass negatives to produce his celebrated series of at least 43 marine studies, the first of which was taken in about In other marine scenes, Le Gray achieved this effect by combining two negatives a practice to which I will return in a moment.

But in this case, he was able to demonstrate his supreme technical mastery of the collodion process by capturing these varied light effects in a single exposure. One photograph, then titled Sea and Clouds but subsequently called Brig on the water , was exhibited at the Photographic Society of London in late ; an advertisement in the Journal of the Photographic Society claimed that copies had been ordered by enthusiastic viewers.

An experienced architectural photographer, Baldus positioned his camera to capture two sides of the new building, giving it a three-dimensional mass and presenting it as the very embodiment of national progress, combining as it does modern architecture and industrial capitalism in the same structure.

In short, this photograph functions as both a document and a potent symbol. A miniature version was incorporated into an elaborate cartouche below a map of the train journey taken by the Queen that was included in the album. An examination of two prints from these different albums, one salted paper and the other a later albumen silver print, but made from the same negative, again offer two quite different visual experiences, one dark and the other warmer in tone.

They are a reminder that photographic images are often reproduced many times, to suit different clients, contexts, and aesthetic tastes. It 48 More of the same is the capacity to print from negatives that gives the photographic medium this distinctive f lexibility. In fact, it has always been a common practice among professional photographers to suppress or enhance elements of a negative during the printing process if that achieves a better-looking photograph.

Rather than further repetitions of the same, let me look in detail at some particular examples from the twentieth century that demonstrate some of the consequences of such manipulations. These examples can tell us quite a lot, not only about what photographers value in their own work, but also about what historians and curators, who usually choose to ignore such interventions, value in theirs.

They were taken, in an unknown sequence, to record the situation of a year old woman Lange found camped on the side of the road in a make-shift tent, accompanied by four of her seven children. As Lange lived in Berkeley, California and Stryker was based in an office in Washington, DC, he mostly communicated with her by letter, sending her general instructions as to the kind of images he wanted. These images would then be distributed from Washington through their reproduction in newspapers, magazines, books, government pamphlets, exhibitions, or any other vehicles that offered themselves.

Despite his reluctance, Lange came to an arrangement with Stryker whereby she was sometimes allowed to develop her own negatives in her home darkroom with costs paid by the RA and make several prints from each. She was then to forward the negatives and one proof print of each to Washington. There the negatives would be printed by others, using her print as a guide, for mass distribution as needed. Altogether, he killed about , negatives. Camera magazine. Here it was presented as an exemplary act of photography, as a work of art rather than a document.

However, a close inspection reveals a thumb in the right foreground, belonging to someone perhaps the mother herself reaching out to grasp a post acting as a tent pole. This thumb is also clearly present in a vintage although now restored print held by the Library of Congress, where most of the FSA archive was deposited in She insisted, for example, that she be sent her Migrant Mother negative so she could make and sign her own photograph of it for the U.

She was reappointed in January , for example, only to be dismissed again in November of the same year although Stryker did buy some of her negatives from her. Lange then decided to prepare a book with her husband, Paul Taylor, to be titled American Exodus: A Record of Human Erosion, a combination of texts and her photographic images.

By September she was once again employed by 52 More of the same Stryker and asked his permission to work on the book as well, with Ansel Adams having agreed to do some of the printing for her. Stryker and Lange continued to argue over her desire to ensure that high-quality prints be made from her negatives, which by this stage were being sent straight to Washington for processing.

In March , she sent him a list of negatives she wanted to borrow so that she could prepare prints of her photographs for American Exodus. At this point, the story becomes murky. Letters show that Stryker made sure she was allowed access to the negatives for only four days, curtailing her ability to have them printed as she wished. Installation photographs show that Migrant Mother was hung next to a photogravure by Paul Strand of a blind woman New York, Once again, confusion reigns.

Could the museum have acquired a different print than the doctored one Lange made in May of , as part of a package of works donated by Bender? Unfortunately, the museum subsequently lost the Bender print in September , eventually replacing it with another, thumbless one. She had them improved, just as she would have done with commercial portraits in her own studio. Stryker believed that such retouching undermined the credibility of photographs that depended for their authenticity on a raw documentary appeal, especially given the considerable criticism faced by New Deal policies and the propaganda that promoted them.

On either side of her are two young children, both with their heads turned away from the camera. Looking off to one side and holding her right hand pensively to her worried face, their mother embodies maternity under siege, an impression underlined by the lack of a man in the composition.

No explanation for her situation is offered by the photograph itself. Instead we are invited to put ourselves in her place, to imagine what we would do if we found ourselves destitute and alone. As a scene, it is full of emotion and didactic implication, speaking of a universal humanity that is deserving of our charity and thus our reassurance rather than our guilt or fear. Sometime in the late s, the negative seems to have been damaged and a new negative was produced, presumably by rephotographing a standard version of the retouched photograph.

This death did not, however, stop the f low of Migrant Mothers from continuing. In , for example, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne bought a portfolio of Lange prints produced in that same year, including a posthumous print of Migrant Mother Figure 4. All prints are manipulations derived from the tonal information gathered on a negative.

Sometimes that manipulation includes the removal of a detail or the erasure of a background. It comes with different looks and in different sizes, and has induced a variety of meanings, as its context has changed over the years. Thanks to the role played by its various negatives, there are, in other words, many Migrant Mothers. To match the complexity of 56 More of the same entities like this, our histories of photography are going to have to be similarly complex, self-consciously acknowledging and ref lecting on this multiplicity of identities in one, a multiplicity that stems once again directly from the interaction of negatives and positives.

Each of these prints looks quite different. We can see a similar exploration of what can be created from a single negative in the three variant prints made between and by Edward Steichen of his image of the Flatiron building in New York. As soon as she had got home to San Francisco, Lange had contacted W. Jenkins, state director of the Surplus Commodities Division, to report on the situation in Nipomo, and, as a consequence, on March 9 some emergency food supplies were rushed to the camp.

See ibid. The print has indeed been extensively retouched. A close inspection shows the thumb to be still there in the print, but painted over so as to blend it in to the foreground. As such, it appears to be the earliest version of Migrant Mother in which the thumb has been repressed. On this kind of cropping, see Stein, Migrant Mother, 62— See Meister, Dorothea Lange, Letter from Lange to Stryker, dated May 16, I thank Amy Purcell for supplying me with a copy.

For a discussion of this correspondence, and its discrepancies, see Stein, Migrant Mother, The J. Paul Getty Museum also owns a print of Migrant Mother, complete with visible thumb, that the museum dates to , and which is signed and dated by Lange. In this instance, at least, it seems she was happy to put her name to an unadulterated print, signing it on the front, like an art work. This one has no signature from either photographer. Lange, quoted in Modern Photography magazine, and quoted again in Spirn, ibid.

The removal of the thumb has been much discussed. See, for example, James C. She never surpassed it. To me, it was the picture of Farm Security … Migrant Mother has all the suffering of mankind in her but all the perseverance too. A restraint and a strange courage. You can see anything you want to in her. She is immortal. An inf luential version of this story is told in F.

In fact, the story that has just been told is typical, certainly for photographs that have enjoyed canonical status within the history of photography. In those essays, I recounted the tale of how, despite being lauded as an example of early modernism, Sunbaker was in fact first printed in , the year that Dupain was accorded a retrospective exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney.

The curators of this exhibition, no doubt anxious to establish a genealogy for Australian art photographers working in the s, had encouraged the year-old Dupain to sift through his back-catalogue of negatives and to make large exhibition prints from those that, in retrospect, looked most modernist Figure 5. As it was a difficult negative to print from, at some point Dupain made an inter-negative by photographing a master impression of Sunbaker, and henceforth he used this new negative as his matrix.

Understandably, this resulted in prints with less visual information than in optimal examples taken from the original negative. Further complicating this story is the inconvenient fact that Dupain had, in , published another, more anecdotal version of this composition in a monograph claiming to be devoted to his best work. This version had been printed from a different negative taken on the same day, a negative that has since been lost.

The front of the published version was signed by Dupain and dated So, in , the photographer remembered taking these exposures in , but in he remembered the year as ! Already we have a bit of confusion to unravel. After his death, it was discovered that Dupain had included a snapshot version of the image in an album devoted to the holiday at Culburra Beach during which it was taken.

One of these exposures frames the tree vertically, while the other two adopt a horizontal point of view. Interestingly, none of them shows the tree in its entirety although other pictures taken on this trip by Cazneaux do show it in the distance. One consequence of this decision is that the tree appears to be stretching backwards, its roots shaking themselves loose from the soil, leaves stirring in the hot wind. Another is that we get to see much more of the roots of the tree than we do of its leafy canopy, which is largely cropped out of each of the pictures.

The spread of these roots is accentuated by the gently rolling hills that make up the horizon line behind. But the tree is the unchallenged subject of this picture. It takes centre stage. It neither stands to one side and frames the scene that extends beyond it, as in the picturesque tradition, nor does it fill the mid-distance, with sky above and earth below.

This version of the scene clearly shows two fence posts to the left of the tree, as well as others standing in a line back further towards the horizon, unmistakable markers of European habitation, exploitation, and ownership of the land. Control methods 63 Despite receiving f lattering praise for this picture, by December Cazneaux had decided to switch to another horizontal negative J , this time showing the same tree trunk from a closer position and framing out the most prominent fence posts.

A version of this view, again slightly cropped on all sides, was published in Bank Notes in that month, titled once again A Giant of the Arid North. In this case, however, he reversed the image entirely, so that the tree appears to lean slightly from left to right. Indeed, there is barely any other foreground in this picture.

From roots to foliage, the tree subtends the picture plane like a single calligraphic stroke, a surprisingly bold compositional gambit for a photographer known as an anti-modernist. The trunk is to the picture plane as the hollow is to the tree, giving this picture a double wound—the first to the f lesh of the tree and the second to the eye of the beholder.

Cazneaux was obviously not averse to returning to his various negatives of a given scene and changing his mind about which of them offered the most effective means of producing the ideal image. Contrary to our own tendency to privilege the moment of origin, this image was for him a constantly varying entity, according to the needs of the moment of printing or his own evolving aesthetic preferences.

He also was not afraid to manipulate his prints to achieve his aims, even when this meant significantly altering the original photographic document. For him, the negative was a mere starting point for a long process of considered picture making. It was in fact first published as The Spirit of Endurance fairly late in its career, in a magazine called Australia: National Journal on May 1, This version is one where the tree leans slightly from right to left, as in the first iterations of this composition.

The passing of the years Control methods 65 has left it scarred and marked by the elements—storm, fire, water—unconquered, it speaks to us of a spirit of endurance. Although aged, its widespread limbs speak of a vitality that will carry on for many more years. One day, when the sun shone hot and strong, I stood before this giant in silent wonder and admiration. The hot wind stirred its leafy boughs and some of the living element of this tree passed to me in understanding and friendliness expressing the Spirit of Australia.

For of course Australia was now at war, caught up in a life and death struggle for survival. As his photograph so ably certifies, the tree had endured and so would Australia and its people. But this overtly nationalist sentiment may well have had a more personal element to it as well. Not only had young Harold been present when his father made the original negatives for The Spirit of Endurance, but he even had a small copy of the print with him in Tobruk, as a sort of personal talisman.

No wonder Cazneaux wrote about this image with such hopeful passion about survival and fortitude! Tragically, Harold Ramsay Cazneaux died on September 14, , during that famous battle. It is yet further evidence of how the meanings and values of photographic images are constantly shifting and developing, as malleable as the physical form of the photograph itself.

This story also underlines the difficulty of describing exactly what a photograph is. This particular caption also conf lates all the titles of prints Cazneaux made from other negatives exposed at the same time they are all listed under the same entry , as if every version of this composition—vertical or horizontal, left-leaning tree or right, bromoil or gelatin silver, made in or in or in —all mean the same thing, indeed are the same thing.

This labelling is merely following what are now standard museum conventions. But think for a moment what those conventions are saying about the identity of photography, about its place in the world. In a single label, the mode of reproduction of photography—that interaction of negative and positive print at the heart of all analogue photographs—is simultaneously repressed and valorised.

My commentary thus far suggests that, in engaging with photography, we are undoubtedly dealing with an unusually complex and slippery phenomenon. The least we can do, then, is be pedantically precise about how we describe, label, caption and catalogue any particular instance of that phenomenon we encounter. In my view, all that information should be given equal weight. We need to throw off our metaphysical obsession with moments of origin and instead embrace the troubling political economy of dissemination within which photography has always operated.

There is a lot at stake in the titling, dating, and description of photographs, including their value in the market place and in the museum. We must nevertheless resist the pressure to tell half-truths or to perpetuate outright falsehoods. For those of us in a position to do so, speaking truth to power is surely the least we can do, even when all we are doing is undertaking the apparently humble labour of cataloguing photographs.

But this change in emphasis from origin to dissemination is also going to require a significant reorientation of our understanding of our object of study. Control methods 67 No longer can we be content with tracing a history of photographs, as if the production of autonomous objects is all that photography is about. But nor can we automatically subsume the photograph to its image, as if the first is a mere footnote to the second.

No, henceforth we must find ways to encompass the dynamic relationship between the material and immaterial manifestations of the photographic experience. The aim is not to resolve this relationship and return it to some sort of fixed certainty. On the contrary, we must keep the contradictions alive in order to tease out all their troubling implications. And to do that we must tenaciously address the particularities of both photographs and their images, in whatever mediums and in whatever numbers they might appear.

Only when we do this effectively, only when we critically engage the spacing of photograph and image, and only when we articulate this spacing in terms of a process of displacement, can we finally begin to offer a history about, rather than just of, photography. But its story is the story of so many photographs. To only analyse a photograph at the moment of its first production, as if its entire meaning is caught at its origins, is to misrepresent the nature of photography.

After disagreements with photographer David Moore, Howe resigned in June of and Moore took over the organisation of the exhibition and the selection of the work in it. Howe recalls being shown a print of the Sunbaker by Dupain, but, when its negative could not be found, it seems Moore encouraged Dupain to use the alternative negative and print a large photograph from it.

From an email by Howe to the author, sent on February 4, Mortimer ed. Dated , the image was made by combining ten paper negatives, cut and joined to match the architectural details of the cloister and painted over to make the final positive image look as seamless as possible. Baldus even included one portion printed from a hand-painted negative1 [Figure 6. This mode of photograph-making, using an extended printing process and employing cut-out paper masks, was supposedly devised by Hippolyte Bayard a little earlier.

A remarkable daguerreotype by the French photographer Marie Charles Isidore Choiselat, The Pavillon de Flore and the Garden of the Tuilleries, was exposed in September , presenting us with a scene in Paris that boasts a dramatically moody sky. That look was achieved by blocking the sky out with a piece of paper or linen for part of the long exposure time, turning the image into a double exposure4 Figure 6.

The obedient pose was steadily maintained for the necessary seconds by the assistance of a human hand on the head and a rope attached to the tail. However, these props have been clumsily eliminated in the printing process, so clumsily that the shadow of the hand remains visible against the background wall, like a ghostly imprint of the original negative.

The manipulation of appearances was not confined to European photographers. We can, for instance, also find examples of the practice in Japan. A painted albumen photograph from the s, usually ascribed to either Baron Raimund von Stillfried or Kusakabe Kimbei, shows a young woman with a traditional janome umbrella posed in a studio, leaning forwards into what appears to be a rain storm5 Figure 6.

Recalling the look of wood-block prints by Hiroshige, the rain slants across the picture in a series of sharp white lines, running diagonally from left to right, some of these lines crossing her body and some Created worlds FIGURE 6. The force of the wind is such that parts of her garment have been lifted, revealing the layers beneath. Her clothing has been beautifully painted, with the undergarment rendered in a particularly striking red colour.

To achieve all this, modifications have been made to the collodion negative as well as the albumen print. The lines of rain have, for example, been carefully painted onto the negative with a very fine brush, and the threads or wires used to hold up the layers of garment have been touched out, so that they are invisible in the final print. The photographer assumes that such signs are universal, as the photograph often comes with an added caption that is printed in English rather than Japanese, either Girl in Heavy Storm or Wind Costume.

By , Kimbei had opened his own studio in Yokohama, a studio that could well have inherited negatives from these two predecessors. The transference of negatives from one professional photographer to another was in fact common during the nineteenth century. For example, when Carleton Watkins went bankrupt in , he was forced to hand over mammoth-plate glass negatives, or more imperial-size negatives, and more than 1, stereo negatives to his creditor, John Jay Cook.

Hart, made by Hart in the s and s. The new owners then printed from these negatives, adding their own trademark inscription. Other kinds of manipulations are harder to notice, or are deliberately made invisible.

On occasions, he used the same sky negative in two or more different compositions, adding a glowering prescribed mood to each scene in which it appeared9 Figure 6. Sometimes Le Gray even combined negatives taken using quite different photographic processes. In one case, titled View of Montmartre, Le Gray used a waxed-paper negative made in for the landscape and a collodion-on-glass negative made in for the sky, combining the two to produce a single salted paper print. In another example, he used a paper negative made in for the landscape and a glass negative made in for the sky, combining them sometime between and Such combinations soon became a common feature of photographic exhibitions.

As is well known, the Swedish-born English photographer Oscar Rejlander shot 32 collodion glass negatives to make his albumen montage titled Two Ways of Life, or Hope in Repentance. He used interchangeable negatives, each printed in turn, beginning with the foreground figures, with the rest of the paper protected with black velvet during the process.

Over the years, he published 11 books and numerous articles on artistic photography, the most inf luential of which was Pictorial Effect in Photography, Being Hints on Composition and Chiaroscuro for Photographers, issued in Some criticised the fact that the light in the picture seemed to have no coherent source, a result of its complicated means of production.

Others complained that it was too disturbingly realistic. A shrub in a f lower pot, behind the sleepers, is somewhat out of focus, although the figures in the foreground and the waves in the extreme distance are alike sharp—effects which are likely to attract the attention of the matter-of-fact observer. Another important photograph, Bringing Home the May from , was printed from nine separate negatives to present a bas-relief frieze of female figures in rural costume, pensive and self-absorbed.

Each of the glass negatives used to compose this frieze was printed one at a time onto a single sheet of specially made albumen paper, with Robinson or his assistants rolling up the unexposed portion in black velvet during the extended printing process.

However it was made, contemporary viewers appreciated the harmony of the overall composition as well as the soothing reference to a pre-industrial English tradition. In seeking to represent the ideal and the imaginary through combination printing achieved in the darkroom, through trickery if you like, Robinson—it seemed to some other photographers—had lost touch with the ultimate touchstone of aesthetic judgment: nature.

Emerson also insisted that the photographer must be true to the place and people he is depicting; accuracy of depiction and action was essential to naturalistic photography, if, that is, it was to attain the look of truth, if it was to be true to nature in this case, the nature of rural labour. With that in mind, Emerson took to photographing traditional English pre-industrial rural workers, producing what amounted to folkloric documents of a dying way of life.

Between and , he published eight books on his ideas and photographs, often generating controversy and debate. In this mingled decision and indecision, this lost and found, lies all the charm and mystery of nature. By this and other means, he deliberately blurred more distant planes and areas surrounding the main object in each picture, and emphasised certain details in the shadows.

In his Preface, Emerson describes it as exemplary of naturalistic photography of the sort he was interested in promoting. As a rule, Emerson rejected the retouching of photographs or negatives. Despite his own rhetoric, however, this photograph is in fact a combination print; to make the final version, Emerson has removed a tree that once sat at the right on the horizon line and replaced a placid sky with a dramatic, cloudy one [Figure 6.

The use of two negatives made these compositional adjustments possible, adding drama and mood without disturbing that softness of focus this photographer associated with naturalism. Only this element is still, with all else caught in f lux. Those photographers entered into a new era of experimentation, seeking the expression of mood rather than mechanical accuracy, and searching for techniques that would give their prints texture and colour as well as truth to nature. As the French photographer Robert Demachy argued: Let the amateur photographer use as much oil, gum or platinum as he likes; let him touch up his photograph with paint or attack it with a scraper: that is perfectly all right with me, so long as he shows me a picture such as the next man could not produce … Perhaps we will be accused of effacing the specific character of photography.

That is indeed our intention. Any manipulation of negative or print in the darkroom was now allowed as long as the ensuing photographic print offered the right kind of phenomenological experience to the viewer. Negatives were combined, f lipped, or retouched by a vast range of ambitious photographers, from Demachy and Edward Steichen to Anne Brigman and even Paul Strand.

You could make an evocative Pictorial photograph in your backyard as easily as in a major city or before a magnificent landscape. For both these reasons its conventionality and its placelessness , Pictorialism quickly became an international style, as readily found in Japan, Australia, or New Zealand as in the United States or Europe. This continued to be so right up into the s. He might photograph a stand of beech trees in his neighbourhood, but he would then print this image through a textured screen itself a photograph of a piece of wallpaper featuring finely-hatched lines that he photocopied onto a piece of glass to give his scene a slightly other-worldly, blurred appearance.

When necessary, he would apply washes to his negative or retouch it with a pencil before printing the image through his screen onto a piece of warm-toned bromide paper. Created worlds 79 This final print might be lightly bleached and then sepia toned, all in order to accentuate its tonal depths and lustre.

Such a photograph was exhibited with his own camera club but also in London with the Royal Photographic Society. In both places, these various manipulations were admired as necessary steps towards an aesthetically elevating photographic experience. Between and , his compatriot Camille Silvy produced four versions of his photograph River Scene, France, each quite differently composed and printed and using at least two negatives to produce the dense atmospheric effects in the sky above the river [Figure 6.

He merged these negatives using India ink finely applied at the join with a thin brush. For one print, he drew an extra bank of cloud onto the negative, and also added some trees. All this helped to enhance the appeal of his main subject: the iconography of leisure on the outskirts of the urban metropolis of Paris. Is this a true portrait of that country? Is it a method of speaking out, yet escaping the fate of a political martyr?

To these questions I cannot reply, as I do not profess to be able to solve such enigmas. In , Silvy produced an even more complex composition, titled either Twilight or Evening Star [Figure 6. Two people, a man and a boy, stand together under a street lamp, with the street itself receding into an indistinct distance, its features blurred by a descending fog and the onset of night. At present, people see fogs, not because they are fogs, but because poets and painters have taught them the mysterious loveliness of such effects.

A similar argument was made to justify the making of enlarged combination prints to represent the combat experience of the First World War. Between and , a number of exhibitions of photographs were held at the Grafton Galleries in London and elsewhere France, Australia, Canada, and the United States to inform and shape public opinion about the war.

It was then coloured with spray guns before being touched up by hand. He had delivered a paper to the Photographic Society of New South Wales on composite printing some time before the outbreak of war, exhibiting an image composed from several negatives that showed different animals photographed at the zoo gathered together in a single scene, a scene given unity by its accompanying cloudy sky. After being told he could not include composite prints of the Australian war effort at these London exhibitions, Hurley threatened to resign from his position as an official war photographer.

Although they featured actual battle sites, some of these negatives were also taken of rehearsals and some of re-enactments, and the fictional appearance of the final prints drew some adverse comments from soldiers. Over 6 metres wide, the completed composition used images shot during prebattle manoeuvres along with others taken many miles away in Palestine.

On the extreme right a machine brought down in flames is burning fiercely. Sometimes this practice is intended to merely idealise or elevate the subject of that photograph; sometimes the intention has been to deceive, whether for profit or propaganda purposes. The making of every photograph involves the calculated calibration of visual information captured in an exposure to light, even as it also involves the privileging of just one moment of time over many others and the f lattening of a moving, three-dimensional world onto a geometrically proportioned, twodimensional and often monochromatic surface.

In other words, photographers intervene in every photograph we ever see. Whether by merely directing; or by directly interfering in the scene to be captured; or by selecting, cropping, excluding, and in other ways making pictorial 84 Created worlds choices; or by manipulating the tones of the negative or print in the darkroom or on screen, photographs are always made, not merely taken.

The finished portrait resembles a photograph, not a particularly good one, but good enough to put a face to an otherwise invisible concept. In , an illustrator for Time magazine adopted a similar approach, digitally merging the faces of 14 models, supposedly representing the racial mix of the USA in that year. This ideal woman why not a man? Both these examples used digital technology.

But the idea of layering multiple exposures to create a single portrait is an old one, and not dependent on any particular photographic technology. In , Francis Galton, a promoter of eugenics, proposed making up composite albumen photographs printed from multiple exposures on a single glass plate negative e.

The March issue of Vogue magazine contained no less than photographic images that had been manipulated all by one company, Box Studios, consisting of 80 employees headed by Pascal Dangin. About of these manipulated images were advertisements and 36 were fashion shots, and then there was the cover image of an almost unrecognisable Drew Barrymore, originally shot by Steven Meisel.

Interestingly, Dangin has said that he aims to use his digital tools to restore images to the look of particular kinds of film-based photographs; he adds red, for example, to grass in order to make it look more like the muted, multi-layered green produced by Kodachrome film. So the question should never be about whether a photograph has been manipulated; it should be about how, and to what ends, that manipulation has taken place. One might well ask those very questions of a contemporary iteration of Pictorialist photography, the work of the German artist Andreas Gursky.

More precisely, they are often made using digital manipulations in which a scene has been improved through the removal of certain details, or enhanced by the addition of others, so that an image ends up spliced with itself, extended, made more of, expanded, re-invented.

Other scenes, such as a diptych showing the interior of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange or of a seemingly vast building, Atlanta , are made by combining a number of images shot at right angles to one another. The negatives from both are then scanned and the data obtained is digitally manipulated to make composite images that resemble photographs. These are then printed at large scale. Their photographicness holds us in suspension before them, not sure whether to give in to belief or to exercise scepticism.

What matters is how each of them, as photographs, induces a certain affect in anyone who looks at them. So, what is this affect? And how does it relate to what the photographs are about, or even to what they are? Or are they also somehow about this capitalism, allowing us a critical purchase on the social and political complexities of our own historical moment?

No focal points structure our response to the picture, because the resolution is everywhere the same. And it provides an equivalent perspective on the world it exploits, a perspective simultaneously omnipresent, pitiless, placeless, and global. Employing numerous digital files of data derived from high-definition satellite imagery, Gursky has fashioned panoramic composite views of those parts of the world usually given short shrift, Created worlds 87 those spaces between land masses that give that land definition, the absence that makes their presence visible.

Ocean III, for example, features an extraterrestrial view of the Pacific, framed by the edges of Australia on one side and the Americas on the other [Figure 6. The blue expanse between them, occasionally dotted with islands—most of them tiny but for the two major islands that make up New Zealand—has been digitally inf lected with variable depths and stretched out of shape to fit a rectangular format.

They are depictions of negative space. Each one is always a world of its own, created. The negative, it turns out, is a site where all these opposing forces are held in a state of irresolution, where every potential outcome is available but none is assured. Paul Getty Museum, , 9. Bunnell ed. Robinson, Pictorial Effect in Photography: Being hints on composition and chiaroscuro for photographers, to which is added a chapter on combination printing London: Piper and Carter, But others objected to both the realism or otherwise of the picture, and the techniques used to achieve it.

As a consequence, Robinson issued smaller copies photographed from this master print. Copies of Bringing Home the May continued to be made from his negatives in subsequent decades, some as late as See Harker, Henry Peach Robinson, 34— There is harmony in the action, purpose, occupation, and pose in each figure, which perfectly connects them as a whole, although divided into separate groups; and there is a feeling of gladness and freshness expressed in every part of the picture.

It is harmonious as a composition, harmonious in gradation of tones; there is perfect gradation in the sunlit and well pronounced foreground objects, and gradation in the distant hazy woods. Emerson and Photography — Munich: Prestel, Emerson also had a number of his other photogravure plates retouched to add or remove clouds or other details. Rejlander first makes this argument in his article for the Journal of the Photographic Society of London; see it in Bunnell, The Photography of O.

Rejlander, For two overviews of Pictorial photography, see Philip Prodger et al. See three examples of seascapes by Le Gray that each share the same sky in Fineman, Faking It, 48— Thanks to Martyn Jolly for generously sharing his research. Steichen himself combined negatives when necessary, as in the two negatives he used to make his gum bichromate print, Rodin, Le Penseur, of Not having a separate negative, each daguerreotype is a unique object and, unless it has been re-reversed with an added mirror, an inverted image.

The negative is there but not there, visible at one moment and invisible the next. Indeed, for the daguerreotype image to be made legible to the eye, its negative version must be suppressed along with the image of the observer, ref lected back from the shiny silver surface. This combination of negative and positive might also explain the almost holographic quality of daguerreotype images, as if the eye of the beholder takes in a subliminal stereoscopic view of virtual and actual image simultaneously.

The size and morphology of the metallic nanoparticles on the surface of the daguerreotype scatter the light ref lected from them, resulting in a form of plasmonic image that only records some colours and not others. A close inspection of the unusual surface topography of the daguerreotype is not confined to the present.

Given the complex surface of the plates, daguerreotype images are fragile entities none of the ones by Claudet just described has survived , suspended in a delicate amalgam of microscopic mercury globules and oxidised silver on a copper surface.
