Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate certain critical approaches to photography and to try to make a re-reading of photographic images, with pursuing some of the reading strategies that French philosopher Jacques Derrida employs in deconstruction. The major aim is to point out the intrinsic features of photographic images which have been foreclosed most of the time, by the discourses established upon it and to trace a possible framework for the experience of images.
