Towards the Conceptualization of the Photographic Image.
Brecheen-Kirkton, R. K.
Photography has always been examined within a representational paradigm that does not accurately reflect its true nature. A new paradigm for thinking about photography based upon the work of language theorists and semioticians, and particularly upon the communications triangle of discourse theorist James L. Kinneavy, provides a vocabulary and perspective that reflect the structure of photographs and enhance rather than obscure our understanding of them. (JL)
