Photology - Arjan de Nooy

In Photology, Arjan de Nooy constructs an overview of photography using found photographs, postcards, online images and photo simulations.


Inspired by the work of Czech philosopher Vilém Flusser (1920-1991), who believed that photography fundamentally changed the way the world is seen, Arjan de Nooy presents his own vision of photography in 20 propositions. These are the opening moves of Photology, from which the book was developed. Photology is a book about photography played by the author.

The title refers to both the study of the medium and the logic of photography games. Using found photographs, postcards, online images and photo simulations, De Nooy constructs an overview of photography. He organizes the book using topical categories such as history, chance, style, information, genres (such as portrait) and photography theorists, without pursuing objectivity or completeness. Each category is highlighted from De Nooy's own perspective and treated in a quirky, sometimes whimsical manner.
