Asher,

thanks for this -

Here is the abstract from

Fiction, Nonfiction, and Deceptive Photographic Representation: paloma atencia-linares
Photographic Art: An Ontology Fit to Print: christy mag uidhir

It is frequently claimed that (1) there is a sense in which a photograph is always an instance of documentary photography and, (partly because of this) (2) photography is fictionally incapable. I will argue that none of these claims is right. I will briefly address (1) contending that it is a mistake to confuse the documental character of a photograph (the causal relation with the source) with the documentary genre, which it may or may not belong to. I will then argue that (2) only holds if one endorses a very narrow view regarding the nature of the practice of photography.

Photographs, I will further claim, can indeed represent fictional entities/events by photographic means. In this way, I will be partially on the side of theorists who defend that photography is fictionally capable (Carroll, Currie, Warburton). Yet, I will offer an alternative argument to support this view.

nice to see theory catching up with practice !

Photography must be a fiction - this applies to any definition of the medium, the inherent beauty of the medium for me is it sometimes appears on a shallow level to be factive.

of course i really should photography the essay and publish it on the internet and make it a work.

cheer !

Yes, at last!! I'm amazed and happy that you have a subscription or do you just get this from the web?
