Benjamin's Baudelaire: Time and Timeless Photography

Benjamin's Baudelaire: Time and Timeless Photography

2014-10-06 Dane Worrallo

Abstract: Walter Benjamin’s accounts and imaginings of Baudelaire are multiple and extensive. Baudelaire’s method and manner of dealing with the world for Benjamin allows him to reveal the structures and mechanisms that constitute modern society. By linking Baudelaire’s way of working to the process of photography, I explore how Benjamin constructs a relationship between Baudelaire, time and photography, and how these ideas are revealing themselves in contemporary photography and networked environments.
