Elogio de la Mirada

Carmen Dalmau


1 in stock

Carmen Dalmau, art historian, professor, critic and independent curator, teaches us in this essay to look carefully and frees photography from the weight that has conditioned it for so long.

“Elogio de la Mirada” (“In Praise of the Gaze”) is a rescue of the gaze against photography understood as a certificate of the real, as an archive of memory, as the eternal present, as writing with light or as a mere mechanical technique. As truth, as object.

He positions photography as a continuity with painting within the flow of art history, praising that look as essential to approach the medium, denying those litanies that are repeated over and over again to talk about photography.
