Later, in the film, he says: “I want to be carried.” Soth yearns for a subject to overwhelm his curiosity, leading him into places and situations that he couldn’t have otherwise foreseen. Photography is his means of discovering both the self and the Other, and where the two meet. It is how he finds “a path through the world.” In terms of their public actions, Rudolph and Merton mark the extremes. “After returning from these two pilgrimages,” Soth writes in Broken Manual, “I met another hermit, Lester B.

Pour avoir testé… C’est confirmé ! Mais on oublie bien vite face aux bonnes surprises du parcours. EmailShare 16EmailShare Ça y est les chiffres sont tombés !

THE sociological theory that the loss of the support of objectively established religion, the dissolution of the last remnants of pre-capitalism, together with technological and social differentiation or specialisation, have led to cultural chaos is disproved every day; for culture now impresses the same stamp on everything. Films, radio and magazines make up a system which is uniform as a whole and in every part. Even the aesthetic activities of political opposites are one in their enthusiastic obedience to the rhythm of the iron system.

Yet the city housing projects designed to perpetuate the individual as a supposedly independent unit in a small hygienic dwelling make him all the more subservient to his adversary – the absolute power of capitalism.
