Where is the Photograph?
Brighton, UK: Photoforum, pp. 31–46.
This book chapter draws on archival work, and posits a morphological link between 19th-century debates on photography and colour and some issues in post-conceptual art. I suggest that in the nineteenth century A.H. Wall and others developed an account of colouring on photographs that confirmed the photograph as a work of art on the condition that it became invisible. The essay traces the residues of this conception in the accounts of Gerhard Richter, John Baldassari and others.
