"In this book of essays Michel Frizot invites us to analyze what distinguishes photography from other disciplines or arts, as it was baptized, practices, what have been the unfortunate comparisons between the human eye and the camera obscura, which is what it contributes the negative to the photographic language, which were the inaccuracies that Walter Benjamín made when writing about the medium few times indicated and refuted here, when it can be considered that we are facing a falsification of a photograph and, finally, the cultural uses, the imaginary, the Confusions and misunderstandings that have accompanied the photographic device from its birth until the rise of digital photography.l.
For Frizot, studying the production of a photo is essential to decipher it: photography is a technical image that is both sophisticated and faulty, which we must differentiate from other types of images, since this is the result of the action of light on a surface sensitive, of a production process that involves an optical device, of specific motivations and circumstances, as well as the perception of a spectator who projects their memories, affections and experiences onto it.
The photographic imaginary allows us to understand the essence of an art that from Niépce to Man Ray and even in the anonymous photos or taken by amateurs has manifested its immense expressive force, at the same time that it has demonstrated its ability to determine the way we perceive the world through them.
