This research focuses on the role of material practices in the aesthetics of photographic production; specifically, it addresses the interactive and networked nature of technologies, materials and practices in shaping the meaning and aesthetics of the ‘doing and making’ of photography. Drawing on recent debates on post-humanism (Wolfe 2009, Rubinstein 2015, Zylinska 2017), I query the overt humanistic focus on the photograph (Mackinnon 2016). Going beyond ‘the human’ as it supposedly exists (Butler 2010, Azoulay 2015), my research explores human actors and objects as actants within a network of co-enabling practices (Barad 2003, Latour 2005), acknowledging their contingent contribution to the aesthetics of photographic production.
