DOUGLAS CRIMP THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ACTIVITY OF POSTMODERNISM PDF

Before I start on my review of this article I have to begin by admitting that I really struggled to decipher some of the points that Crimp was trying to explain. For this reason I have felt uncomfortable in relying fully on my translation and have, therefore, read wider to better understand the concept of postmodernism as related to photography. The key words here seem to be representation and appropriation. This first photograph below is based of my Project: Lost. I took this photograph because it is where, as a child, I bought a fishing net to take with me to the local park; and the bushes are also places where we used to play.

This first photograph below is based of my Project: Lost. I took this photograph because it is where, as a child, I bought a fishing net to take with me to the local park; and the bushes are also places where we used to play. It is thus relevant and significant to the story I am telling about my childhood lost. If I was to explain these details to my audience then the photograph would become one dimensional as I would be trying to dictate a singular truth.

There is much more of an aesthetic style within this photograph and thus more representational of the photographer. This third photograph below is a much closer example of postmodernist appropriation. The thing that I am appropriating is the view or reality and what it represents. In this example I have begun to remove the artificial grass that the footballers are playing on. You are commenting using your WordPress.

So firstly I find Douglas Crimp to be an digestible writer that I can follow. It is not laborious to read his text. In the displacement of traditional aura in contemporary performance art and sculpture an area of declared interest of mine. Benjamin included photography, albeit selectively in having an aura. What he says depreciates the aura is the overuse of mechanical reproduction. Conversely my question here is; If an individuals first encounter with a work is due to mechanical reproduction, is that a bad thing?
