About this book

This book provides a critical introduction to François Laruelle’s writings on photography, with a particular focus on his two most important books on photography: The Concept of Non-Photography and Photo-Fiction, a Non-Standard Aesthetics. By unpacking and contextualising these works, this study provides a useful starting point for students and scholars who want to better understand Laruelle’s larger project, which he calls “non-philosophy”, or more recently, “non-standard philosophy”. With clear and concise explanations of the basics of non-philosophy, Laruelle and Non-Photography demonstrates how Laruelle's thought challenges standard, philosophical approaches to photography, and culminates in a novel theory of "non-photography."

Reviews

“Jonathan Fardy provides a clear and comprehensive account of Laruelle’s writings on non-photography and non-standard aesthetics. To the extent that non-photography itself offers a usefully concrete and determinate model of Laruelle’s overall project, Laruelle and Non-Photography serves as a fine starting-point for those interested in non-philosophy more generally. For any reader looking for an approachable introduction to what theorizing photography becomes from this unique theoretical vantage point, Fardy’s book is certainly the best place to begin.” (Rocco Gangle, Endicott College, USA)
