CONCHA LAGOS, José Pablo. The impossibility of a photographic essence, as technical device: Notes on the aesthetics of photography by Francois Soulages. Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.52, pp.477-486. ISSN 0718-7181.

This article discusses the contribution of French philosopher Francois Soulages' «Esthétique de la photographie» to aesthetic theory. We will concentrate on key concepts in his text such as photographicity, irreversible and endless, which are derivative from analogic photography. These concepts will be thought within the possible performance of binary-numeric photography; therefore, the essence of photography weakens in what transcendentally defines it, recognizing its peculiarity by the manner and context of use.

Keywords : photographicity; irreversible; endless; remission; photography.
