Abstract:Some of the earliest pieces of evidence in art history show how people told stories with pictures and, throughout the centuries, this habit developed with the introduction of new techniques, themes, and tools. Given the value of authenticity that has often been ascribed to photography since its invention, this medium had to overcome criticism before its value as fine art was recognised. This diploma thesis analyses in which ways photography is capable to carry narratives. It also analyses the roles that the viewer, the photographer, and the image itself play in this process. To do so, this work examines notable theories on the topic, the intentions behind the photographers’ creative process, and the visual components of images. By focusing both on ideas introduced by scholars and on photographic works – including my diploma project Dune Mosse – the thesis underlines the importance that social and cultural contexts have in the narration of a story.

Title:FOTOGRAFIJA IN PRIPOVED : Kako se zgodbe pišejo skozi fotografski medij
Abstract:Pripovedovanje zgodb s podobami je prisotno tudi v najzgodnejših primerih umetnosti v človeški zgodovini. Gre za prakso, ki se je skozi stoletja razvijala z novimi tehnikami, temami in mediji. Zavoljo avtentičnosti, ki je vse od njene iznajdbe mnogokrat pripisana fotografiji, je ta medij moral najprej preseči kritike, preden je bil prepoznan kot umetnostni izraz. Delo analizira možnosti ustvarjanja naracije, ki jo lahko nosi fotografija. Obenem proučuje vloge, ki jih gledalec, fotograf in podoba sama igrajo v tem procesu. Temu sledeč delo raziskuje pomembne teorije izbranega področja, namene ustvarjalnega procesa fotografa in vizualne komponente slik. Z osredotočenjem tako na ideje teoretikov kot tudi na fotografska dela – vključujoč moj diplomski projekt Dune Mosse – naloga poudari pomembnost družbenih in kulturoloških kontekstov v naraciji zgodbe.
