Denise Prince Photography
Denise Prince the scream


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Similarly, in the same way Duchamp's ready-made re-turned viewers towards the nature of art and the art world, the photograph returns what is unthought and unseen in the viewer's experience. When the photograph cites or punctuates the negated content, the viewer is afforded the opportunity to catch a glimpse of something beyond the reality of the image: a glimpse of the real, the "mute presence beyond meaning" as Zizek has described it. Furthermore, the photograph is like an experience of anxiety, where the real fullness that exceeds human expression is made into a limited and exploitable disposable resource, quantified and identified by its re-semblance of potency qua paralysis. Art and analysis force a confrontation with this anxiety, and give a voice to the unspoken, subversive protest.
