GEOFFREY BATCHEN EACH WILD IDEA PDF

In Each Wild Idea , Geoffrey Batchen explores a wide range of photographic subjects, from the timing of the medium's invention to the various implications of cyberculture. Along the way, he reflects on contemporary art photography, the role of the vernacular in photography's history, and the Australianness of Australian photography. The essays all focus on a consideration of specific photographs--from a humble combination of baby photos and bronzed booties to a masterwork by Alfred Stieglitz. Although Batchen views each photograph within the context of broader social and political forces, he also engages its own distinctive formal attributes. In short, he sees photography as something that is simultaneously material and cultural.

Essays on photography and the medium's history and evolving identity. In Each Wild Idea , Geoffrey Batchen explores a wide range of photographic subjects, from the timing of the medium's invention to the various implications of cyberculture. Along the way, he reflects on contemporary art photography, the role of the vernacular in photography's history, and the Australianness of Australian photography.

The essays all focus on a consideration of specific photographs—from a humble combination of baby photos and bronzed booties to a masterwork by Alfred Stieglitz.

Although Batchen views each photograph within the context of broader social and political forces, he also engages its own distinctive formal attributes. In short, he sees photography as something that is simultaneously material and cultural. In an effort to evoke the lived experience of history, he frequently relies on sheer description as the mode of analysis, insisting that we look right at—rather than beyond—the photograph being discussed.

A constant theme throughout the book is the question of photography's past, present, and future identity. Unruly, energetic, unmastered. Also eruditem engaged and rigorous.

Batchen's essays have arrived at exactly the right moment, when we need their skepticism and imagination to clarify the blurry visual thinking of our contemporary cultures. Geoff Batchen is one of the few photography critics equally adept at historical investigation and philosophical analysis. His wide-ranging essays are always insightful and rewarding. This book includes the most important essays by Geoffrey Batchen and therefore is a must-have for every scholar in the fields of photographic history and theory.

Batchen takes each element of history as equal ground for coding and de-coding and approaches each part of a given subject as just as important as all the others. He works from a wealth of material deriving not only from photographic, art, and literary history but also from industrial archeology, information science, biology, and other sciences.
