Secondary Breathing, 1932 onward
The Breathing Photographs in this gallery breathe through time (diachronically) within Paul Julien’s legacy. Each of these breathing photographs consists of at least two manifestations of the same exposure. Such a manifestation may be a lantern slide, produced and used by Julien for his illustrated lectures, or a published version of a photograph from a book, journal, magazine or newspaper. All the materials were produced in direct relation to Paul Julien’s life and work. Some of them are part of the documents in the collection of the Nederlands Fotomuseum, others have been collected by me over time. In this category the expansion of the photographic moment provides insights into the choices made not only by Julien, but also by (other) editors towards an encounter with a particular audience.
