The essay becomes most interesting to me from p. Although that is important to any artist. But this was particularly important because, as I say, more than I realized it established the documentary style as art in photography.

For the first time it was influential, you see. The Museum is a very influential place. But the style of detachment and record is another matter.

That applied to the world around us is what I do with the camera, what I want to see done with the camera. There was obviously more than one interview in where Evans discussed his view as ASX reproduce another interview here. Later photographers had utilised this approach e. Nancy Burson who has produced many computerized composites. Sekula certainly provides plentiful evidence to support his viewpoint on the repressive use of photography and I think this is an interesting standpoint, given that he wrote this essay 30 years ago.

The technique of creating digital composites has also been used to visualize the ageing of those who have gone missing, particularly children. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Allan Sekula “The Body and the Archive” (1986)

Although photographic documentation of prisioners was not all common until the s, the potential for a new juridical photographic realism was widely recognized in the s. At the same time, photographic portraiture began to perform a role no painted portrait could have performed in the same thorough and rigorous fashion. Thus photography came to establish and delimit the terrain of the other, to define both the generalized look — the typology — and the contingent instance of deviance and social pathology. We can speak then of a generalized, inclusive archive, a shadow archive that encompasses an entire social terrain while positioning individuals within that terrain. This paradigm had two tightly entwined branches, physiognomy and phrenology.

The Body and The Archive – Allan Sekula

Historical in approach, there is a political flavour from the beginning. The use of photography by the police has been significant and impacted upon society yet this is largely unrecognised. It was aimed not only to make a recognisable record of criminals but also to try and determine what the criminal type might be. The sciences of phrenology and physiognomy used photography in an attempt to further their claims and develop their research.

Sekula, A. A 19th century Phrenology chart. In the end of the essay, Sekula pushes his argument further to place current photographers practices within this tradition, distinguishing between photographers that embrace the archival paradigm and those that oppose it. The archival paradigm is represented by the work of Alphonse Bertillon French, and Francis Galton English, , two pioneers of early scientific policing that developed the concepts and tools that allowed the growth of the generalised practice of the bureaucratic handling of visual documents. Bertillon and Galton, represented two attempts to regulate social deviance by means of photography. Bertillon: identity and physiognomy. Bertillon: filing system.
