Araki Nobuyoshi, Tokyo Radiation August 6-15th, 2010:
Araki was receiving radiation treatment for cancer and every morning he
“looked at the sky
from where the bombs came”.
“Other people brush their teeth, I brush my eyes,”
Green, D. and Lowry, J. (2003):
“Photographs... are not just indexical because light happened to be recorded in an instant on a piece of photosensitive film, but because,
first and foremost,
they were taken.
The very act of photography, as a kind of
performative gesture, which points to an event in the world,
as a form of designation...
is thus itself a form of indexicality.”
