A Photographic Ontology: Being Haunted within the Blue Hour and Expanding Field
PhD dissertation - Visual Arts (2014)
What are the current boundaries of the photographic and how can an ontology of photography take form as a material and conceptual program of research? Responding to the difficulty inherent in any definitive attempt to grasp photography, this dissertation places emphasis on the less determined act of evoking as a model of dialogue, and engagement, with the photographic. Composed of two parts that engage both the question “What is photography?” and the ontological anxiety that shadows it.
