“The task of a philosophy of photography is to reflect upon the possibility of freedom – and thus its significance – in a world dominated by apparatuses [cameras], to reflect upon the way in which, despite everything, it is possible for human beings to give significance to their lives in face of the chance necessity of death. Such a philosophy is necessary because it is the only form of revolution left open to us”. A quote from Towards a Philosophy of Photography by Vilém Flusser, 2000, I’ve been reading this week. It’s an interesting account modelling a distinction between ‘light writing’ (photography) and writing text itself. It’s a good academic read and I’ve read it whilst dipping into a more textured and multi-faceted collections of stories. Exploring love, intimacy, humiliation, grief and shame, not dissimilar to this weeks range of emotions. Long rhythmic sentences ran into each other, ironically as we physically cannot do. A story without an answer but there was a poignant optimism within the prose, it leaves one feeling the hope might spread. This weeks mobile photography and Art showcase swells with jovial pressure, feelings evolve, diverting from expectation. Enjoy.
