This book addresses the issues directly involved with the photographic image and its ever growing exhibition in various realms of Western society, from its role in advertising and editorial communication to fine art. Special attention is given to representations of the human form and how portraiture has developed via an art historical perspective to its present manifestation in photography and new media, such as digital imaging and video. We are living in a world where photographic representation holds a very real position in one?s everyday existence. Through examples of both traditional oil painted portraits and contemporary photography, this book examines the spectator/subject relationship and the subsequent dislocation in space and time of the viewer as the Other.
