A philosophical investigation into the differing sensations of time 
in cinema and photography

PHOTOGRAPHY, CINEMA, MEMORY: The Crystal Image of Time
Damian Sutton
University of Minnesota Press | 288 pages | 2009
ISBN 978-0-8166-4739-2 | paperback | $25.00
ISBN 978-0-8166-4738-5 | hardcover | $75.00

Damian Sutton explores time in both cinema and photography to present 
a radical new understanding of the photographic image as always 
coming into being. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze's concept of the crystal 
image to move beyond the tropes of immobility, stasis, and death, 
Sutton's analysis reveals the open-endedness of time expressed in the 
photograph.

"This book adds an important dimension to the contemporary study of 
photography. As the oldest of our new media technologies takes new 
forms and enters a complex phase, our traditional theories of 
photography, the photograph, and the 'photographic' are being tested. 
Firmly based in a consummate grasp of photographic culture and 
theory, as well as its limits and challenges, Damian Sutton explores 
how Deleuze's influential philosophy of the cinematic image can also 
illuminate our understanding of its foundational element: the 
photographic image itself. Photography, Cinema, Memory should take a 
place on the short shelf of new and significant thinking about 
photography." -Martin Lister, University of the West of England, 
Bristol
