' 1.; tastiest? In his choice at photographs tor ‘The Photographic Art’ exhibition at the Stills gallery, Milte Weaver is arguing a specilic case.
There is, he maintains, a sort at corporate memory, a shared association of ideas connected with images, which recognises types. Far from photography needing to leave behind pre-photographic pictorial art, this is in fact the memory system from which new image-makers evolve. Thus ‘Noah is a type ol Christ, Tennyson a
’ type at King Arthur’. Gertrude
Kaserbier‘s photograph ‘Blessed art thou among women' at a child in a
doorway, standing on the threshhold, 3 is a type at the Virgin Mary, and Julia
T Margaret Cameron's ‘The Angel of the § Tomb' is a type at Magdalen.
It is certainly a personal and an
section describing the criteria and methods ofselection and testing will be included.
