The body, the Camera and the Act of Photographing


This article presents an extended reading proposal on the photographic device, being the photographic camera an important element in the construction of a thought in photography. By looking at the camera as a body not reducible only to its technical possibilities, we see that its resources guide displacements in space, being fundamental in building a certain point of view in relation to a subject. From these initial considerations, several examples are presented in the context of photography as an artistic language, with the aim to offer a reading about the presence of the camera in the photographic production, in the theoretical studies and the consequent influence and dialogue with the image itself.
