FAILED IMAGES
Photography and its Counter-Practices
Ernst van Alphen

Failed Images attempts to understand the divergence between photography and the reality it portrays, analysing the various ways the photograph transforms that which exists in front of the camera. Photography is not only determined by technical features, but also by a conventional approach to it. This approach can be recognized in what is now called a 'snapshot'. But he photographic medium enables also very different practices and as a result very differnt kinds of photographic images. To see this, one needs to look at the diversity of photographic images and practices outside the dominant approach. Using close readings of the work of amongst others Cindy Sherman, Thomas Ruf, Dirk Braeckman, Juul Kraijer and Awoiska van der Molen, this book explores the photographic image by focusing on photographic practices refusing the dominant approach to the medium, namely staged photography, blurred photography, under- and overexposed photography and archival photography.

Ernst van Alphen is professor of Literary Studies at Leiden University (NL). Previously he was Queen Beatrix Professor of Dutch Studies and Professor of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. He has published not only on literature, but also many books on art and photography.
Specifications - 17 x 23 cm, 286 pages. ill. bw. Language: English.
