Denise Prince Photography



 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

This collaboration of Denise Prince and Charles Merward (an artist making photographs and a psychoanalyst supervising) reveals how both practices intervene in the supposedly uninterrupted flow of experience. Tractatus 7 specifically and photography generally--given one is looking--captures what is unseen more than what is seen. In this way, it may be understood as analogous to the psychoanalyst's intervention. The analysand (the one who is requesting analysis) speaks without editing oneself and the analyst listens to the speaker. Much of the detail and alternate possibilities of meaning in the analysand's utterance is unthought and unheard unless returned to the analysand in the analyst's intervention (most often, the repetition of a word or phrase.)
