Museum of Thrown Objects: Roland Barthes Memorial Photography Wing presents "Arch(i)tectural Ser(i)es: Seven Self-Portraits"

“The Photograph is an extended, loaded evidence — as if it caricatured not the figure of what it represents (quite the converse) but its very existence … The Photograph then becomes a bizarre “medium”, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: a temporal hallucination, so to speak, a modest ‘shared’ hallucination (on the one hand ‘it is not there,’ on the other ‘but it has indeed been’): a mad image, chafed by reality.” – Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

“I want a History of Looking. For the Photograph is the advent of myself as other: a cunning dissociation of consciousness from identity. Even odder: it was before Photography that men had the most to say about the vision of the double. Heautoscopy was compared with an hallucinosis; for centuries this was a great mythic theme.” – RB, CL

  1. These collages were built in my lap from my archive of 35mm prints, spanning 1983(?)-2008. Some locales include: Spain, Las Vegas, Glacier National Park, DC, San Diego, mass. & many parts between. Rephotographed using a Nikon Digital.
