Conquest of photography: a tale of abstraction versus the richness of images.

Hamlyn, Jim

Authors

Jim Hamlyn



Abstract

The aim of this presentation is to bring into relief the degree to which our language-centric view of the world obscures our understanding of photography and depiction more generally. Or, as Wittgenstein put it: 'Philosophy is the battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.'
