Camera Placere (2017)


Camera Placere is a zine compiling iphone screenshots of amateur pornography in which the recording device is visible.

A reframing of the traditional discursive history of photography beyond memory recollection, death, and mechanical reproducibility, Camera Placere instead looks at the carnal-mythological specter of mirror devices, and the ways that self-display motivates and undergirds the continuation of prosthetic, handheld technologies.
