The idea for a reprint of “The Photography of the Invisible” was inspired by the critical observations of Galileo in the context of his solar disks of around 1617 and by the current questions to an Ab_BILD. The role of photography at the beginning of the 20th century, conceptualized by occultism and symbolism, was ascribed at the time of the search for meaning the meaning and ability to be able to show what the human eye could not reproduce. A kind of trust in an alchemical process that is able to elude partial logics and creates its own essence. Using light as a medium, Mischa Kuball explores architectural space as well as social and political discourses. In this way, various socio-cultural structures and the history of architecture are reflected.
