Is photographic technology masculine? How does its history change when written from a female perspective? Can phototechnology be gendered? Yes! When female artists with an affinity for technology bring digital and analogue work processes into the picture, when they take the camera fetish literally, when they make 3D-modelled body fragments appear out of thin air, when they produce autoradiographs with samples of radioactive pitchblende or when they stage equilibrium studies based on Lucia Moholy. What images emerge when photographic technique is the motif and their authors are female?

PHOTOTECHNICSA is a book that is artistic and scientific, theoretical and erotic, sensual and factual at the same time, with artistic and theoretical contributions on techniques of seeing, the camera fetish, reproduction, women and the early days of photography, role images in photo manuals and much more. In addition, a look at media history shows what the relationship between women and photographic technology was really like and which clichés persist to this day.

The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition FOTOTECHNIKA II at the FOTOHOF, Salzburg, 30 March to 20 May 2023.
