On The Verge of Photography: Imaging Beyond Representation
Edited by Daniel Rubinstein, Johnny Golding & Andy Fisher ISBN: 978-1-873352-02-1
On the Verge of Photography: Imaging Beyond Representation is a provocative and bold rethinking of photography in light of the digital transformation and its impact on fine art, culture and society.  Addressing the centrality of the digital image to our contemporary life, the fourteen new essays in this collection challenge the traditional categories of photographic theory - that of representation evidence, documentation and the archive - and offer a fresh approach to its impact on aesthetics, contemporary philosophy and the political. Drawing on the networked human condition of embodiment, social media, and bio-politics, On the Verge of Photography offers an invaluable resource for students of visual culture, researchers in the field of digital imaging and artists working with new media.

The authors in this publication have made significant contributions to the intersection between the fields of queer studies and art based practice in which the status of art is considered in an academic research context. What readers will encounter are a number of thoughtful responses to the curious notion that there may well be some correspondence between the activities, activations and activism of both queer and art. Something I will playfully inscribe as qUeErArT
 a pictorial neologism, an almost calligram
circumstance perhaps in which our ways of engaging with art lead us to the experiencing of ‘strange conundrums’. Con
undrums that operate in different modes of communication, or so for the moment we
may think. Cultural producers, such as Derek Jarman, Tobias Schneebaum and Frank O’Hara, are
mobilised in the exploration of essence, identity construction and the aesthetic subject which leads to a conceptualisation of queer sorority and affective kinship in relationship to the work of Peter Hujar and  Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons. This leads us on to the emotionally complex, highly codified and unsettling world of Ranier Werner
Fassbinder’s film
as a means of imagining a queer grammar 
While the trajectory of the book is to explore some recent moves in queer studies that extend the
work of queer
beyond the realm of the sexualised identity the politics of Queer are rarely far from view. With a consideration of David
Wojnarowicz’s, banned film,
 A Fire in My Belly 
, the politics of censorship and art as animal excess are eloquently discussed. In a philosophical move the conceptualisation of a
queer parrhe
sia explores the importance of
the carnal-knowledge practice of the body
that Socrates so carefully neglects which takes us finally to the practice of
, to those we turn to
 for example
 Roland Barthes and Sarah  Ahmed
 when love takes over and the words we love leave love itself unrequited.
