Title Photography, Cinema and The Drama of Representation
Author(s) Walkling, Andrey
Year 2016
Abstract In the last twenty years, fine art photography has undergone a shift from photography that documents ‘reality’ to photography that is actively engaged in the construction of fictions or alternate realities. That is, from the ‘representation of drama’ to the ‘drama of representation’. Consequently the range of stories that photography can tell has also expanded. My work employs constructed photography to investigate the extent to which the conventions of narrative cinema can be appropriated and applied to the emerging genre of photo-cinema. In particular, my investigation has focused on performances, projections, projected meanings and projection technologies in the portrayal of mid-20’s relationships and their conflicts of love and longing. My research contributes to our collective knowledge and understanding of, and engagement with, the genre, history, themes, processes and production of photo-cinema works of art.
