On Photography, (After Susan Sontag)-

Semiotic Books for Tumbler Readers

Susan Sontag’s On Photography appears like a completely empty book; paradoxically, she has written a text on photography theory without including a single image. Furthermore, these books are accompanied by the spreads that are produced when editing a publication. In these spreads the images can be found rotated or inverted, and the paper allows us to sense the other pages that are printed on the back. In this way, we can see the entire contents of the book in one glance, as though looking at an analogue screen.
