Abstract :
Kirk writes 'the initial inspiration for this paper came from the observation that many investigative procedures involve photography, often resulting in very handsome images. Photography is therefore a perfectly suitable conceptual, artistic model in which to address concerns and revelations in science. The intention is to show that photography has been, and still is, affected by a scientific mind-set that is detrimental to our collective well being. It is also the intention of this paper to give examples of these biases as they appear in photographic history and then present alternatives in scientific philosophy and corresponding alternatives in photographic art production'. ;
