The Truth in Photography

From the very invention of photography in the early part of the nineteenth century right up through the most recent developments in photography through digital technology, theorists have never stopped asking whether there is in fact any truth at all in photography. The essays collected in this volume consider this and related questions (for example, the relationship between photography and representation, history, time, narrative, memory, mourning, and so on) through the works of Walter Benjamin, Helene Cixous, and Jacques Derrida, among others. The volume opens with a previously untranslated essay by Derrida on photography, entitled, precisely, Aletheia (Truth), and it concludes with 'Melville's Couvade', an original work of fiction on the theme of photography by David Farrell Krell.
