From Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art.

One man, looking more serious, clutches a large plate camera to his chest. He may have not actually taken one.
What might they have thought of what they saw? What effect would it have on photography? What purpose might it serve? Was it competition? Was it a novelty or would it last? It passes in seconds but its enigma remains. The questions must have been felt acutely. Almost from the beginning it was put to use across the spectrum of the arts and sciences. How can one unite under a single identity images as varied as passport photos, advertising, topographic studies, family snaps, medical records, news pictures and police documents?
Painting, literature, sculpture, theatre and cinema have offered different ways to consider what photography is. Not surprisingly, different ideas have emerged. Painting puts the emphasis on questions of description and actuality. Literature puts the emphasis on realism and expression. Theatre emphasizes the performative. Cinema tends to emphasize aspects of duration and the frame I am simplifying, of course.
Such approaches are unavoidable and we see them in all kinds of discussion of photography, both popular and specialist. Photography had also become a mass medium via the illustrated press. Indeed, one of the aims of Film und Foto was to highlight how central the photographic sensibility was to the 9 2 Poster for the Film und Foto exhibition, Stuttgart, Its preference was for the expressive montage of fragments, resisting the presentation of seamless stories.
While Film und Foto made clear this connection, in other respects the event was not the great unifying force that was intended. Should one proceed on the grounds of a shared technical base? Shared aesthetic concerns? Shared cultural aims? An obvious way to think about the relation is to weigh up what their mechanisms do and do not have in common. But stressing the apparatuses over their social uses or their aesthetic dimensions will give us only a partial account.
They are to a great extent the sum of the kinds of images we have chosen to make with them. The capturing of moments and recording of visual facts were potentials of photography that shaped everything from camera manufacture to the expectations of their users. As such, the photo is capable of becoming a kind of fetish, standing in for the absent subject or moment. Film is not inherently narrative or popular.
Photography is not inherently domestic or a snapshot. The analysis starts off general and technical but soon 11 Even so, such a binary approach remains useful, not least because it prompts us to look for exceptions.
In the era of home dvd perhaps it can. And as important archives of old movies shot on nitrate stock begin to rot away perhaps they too are becoming more object-like than they were ever intended to be. We can grasp this relation between the technical and the cultural more clearly with some further examples. He sets up his large-format camera at the back of cinemas and leaves the shutter open while a whole movie is projected. The result is an image of a bleached-out screen of over-exposure, the trace of hundreds of thousands of still photographs projected 24 per second.
At the same time light bouncing off the screens illuminates12 3 Decasia: the State of Decay Bill Morrison, , frame. Sugimoto has made dozens of such photographs across North America in everything from Art Deco movie palaces to modern multiplexes and drive-ins. Black and white photograph. These were quickly produced photo-stories printed as cheap magazines for post-war movie audiences see chapter Two. A stills photographer takes a single shot. The performers spring back into movement and continue the scene.
Sometimes they pose themselves or halt when the director yells. Photography is shown as a poor relation of cinema, one that serves it as an imitator and handmaiden, which in many respects it already was by the s.
But it is not the pack of hungry paparazzi to which she gives her attention. She singles out the lens of the sole news movie camera in their midst, giving it all her best gestures.
The photographers are left to grab what they can, even though their role in the publicity game is so vital. But in a third image a crowd of giant stills cameras dwarfs a hopeful starlet. The pecking order is clear. It is a view that many photographers would accept. Wall himself has made complex staged photographs at the scale of cinema see chapters Two and Four , while Figgis is one of several directors who have experimented with digital video cameras and minimal crews, seeking the lightness and independence we associate with footloose photographers.
In the s Andy Warhol took cinema away from narrative and motion and close to the stillness of photog- raphy. Even mainstream cinema has within its grammar the long take of immobility think of the classic establishing shot, or pensive spaces awaiting movement, such as railway platforms and empty rooms. In his analysis of cinematic time Gilles Deleuze noted: At the point where the cinematographic image directly confronts the photo, it also becomes radically distinct from it.
Of course, to an extent it is, because it is deprived of so many of the resources of cinema. To these we could add all the procedures of assembly so central to the development of photography: the album, the archive, the diary, the photo-novel, the photo essay, sequences, juxtapositions, montage, collage, the slideshow and all the new modes opened up by electronic technologies see chapter One.
Where To Start Studies such as this book are pieced together from fragments, and the work of assembly usually begins somewhere in the middle. It also comes from halfway between photography and cinema.
The man in the wheelchair with the camera is the actor James Stewart playing L. Jeffries, a New York photojournalist who works for magazines such as Life and Look. These magazines offered a mix of entertainment and news.
