My post so far so good on post-photograph have mostly centred around the subject of the image. The author of the image, the machinery mechanism in which photography attempts to create art is where photography has failed. What distincts the photograph from the painting  is that we are able to see the hand, the history, the authority, the authenticity of the image as depicted through the authority of his strokes. As established prior to the production of this images, perspective is the authority of the photographer.

What i have tried to do within this collection of photos is construct pictures in a way that they read as paitings by altering the hue in photoshop to create the sense of the mystical by suggesting the absence of realism, restoring the illusion of the image to the picture.

And so i end by saying to Frederic Jameson, the individual is not dead.
