This visual manifesto explores the notion of ‘the photographic’, an analysis of the effects the technical image has on the visual culture as a whole. The glossy photo essay focuses on contemporary artistic practices and experimental approaches to photography, divided into four themes: The Photographic Fossil, Chemical Matter, Optical Confusion, and Performing the Image. The accompanying text insert engages a discourse among artists and intellectuals on defining photography and technique. ‘Off Camera’ is the conclusion of a research project carried out by Belgian researcher Steven Humblet’s group, Thinking Tools, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp.
