Photo Shop Poster


The Photo Shop Poster in particular seems to announce its objectness, and that of the photographic objects it depicts, while also putting them into question. At first glance, the image appears to have been composited using Adobe’s Photoshop computer software, but, in fact, it is a straightforward snapshot of the interior of a photo lab in Venice, Italy. It’s something like a readymade compilation of photo objects, and as such, a profile not just of the person seen in the reflection or the architectural space, but of photography in a broader sense.
