Doubt (8)

While reading and thinking about photography questions come up. Questions I don’t have answers to yet. For now theorizing on photography equals doubt to me. The thoughts are random and incoherent.

I don’t have a philosophy- i have a camera. Saul Leiter

Studium vs punctum = message vs effect
Studium = stock, punctum= art
Studium = technical good, punctum goes beyond technical
Studium teaches, punctual touches
Studium = culture, puncture = personal

Barthes’ camera lucida – more personal reflection then an adequate theory. Some interesting observations though.

Cuthbert Bede – photography is essentially a light subject and should be treated in a light manners. I agree.

Slavoj zizek writes multiculturalism = “racism with a distance.” Very interesting to think this through (liz wells p274)
