Abstract:This paper explores the possibility of applying the theory of documentality to the photograph, examining it in the context of the photo archive. To this end, I maintain that a photograph's document value is not determined by its nature, but by its relationship to inscription practices. And I regard the space of the archive as a paradigmatic device that produces cognitive strategies on the word pairing “photograph/photographs” inextricably linked to the inscriptions connected with it, in the form of “archiwritings” and registrations, in essence: with the words of the archive itself.
