Light in the Dark Room: Photography and Loss

Light in the Dark Room: Photography and Loss

by JayProsser (Author)

Synopsis

When we look at a photograph we see a moment that is no more. Photographs place reality into the past tense, representing not memory but memory's loss. They are not conduits for the return of memory, but memento mori: reminders of the fact of death itself. And in this, Jay Prosser tells us, that we find the gift of photography.
