Issue 1 : Face

“Every face is unique because it does not signify anything other than itself; it is both the signifier and the signified, the undifferentiated. In every instant it is fully and completely this act of signifying, and only because of this we perceive it in every moment as alive…”

“Photography, whose time-tense is absence of the present, makes apparent the face, and with it the concept of uniqueness as an idea. Not an idea of the face, since that is nonsense. It reveals the precise idea of the uniqueness that is the sole reality of all the expressions of the face.”
