On Zoe Leonard and Tacita Dean
Zoe Leonard and Tacita Dean are artists who attach great value to analogue photography and film. They resist the inexorable rise of digital photographic technologies and the corresponding near obsolescence of the analogue. Their work makes salient the virtues or specific character of analogue film such as its indexicality and openness to chance, characteristics the full significance of which have only become apparent under pressure of digitization. The chapter draws attention to a kind of photographic art practice that is marked by contingency and seared by reality.
