Read full description of the books O Instante Contínuo:

Uma conversa sobre fotografia, cheia de conexões surpreendentes e observações perspicazes

Para Henri Cartier-Bresson, o objetivo da fotografia era captar o momento decisivo de uma cena ou evento. Geoff Dyer, que não é fotógrafo mas escritor, está interessado em captar o oposto: a continuidade, os temas que se repetem e se renovam, as fotos que dialogam umas com as outras ao longo da história da fotografia. Longe do manual acadêmico e dentro da melhor tradição do ensaio, este livro é como uma boa conversa, em que um assunto puxa outro livremente, ao sabor da inspiração.

Sem o rigor classificatório e a abordagem cronológica,Dyer parte de um ponto qualquer (por exemplo, a foto de um cego feita por Paul Strand) para nos levar por uma reflexão muito pessoal pelo mundo da fotografia, centrada em temas, motivos, cenas, objetos, gestos que se repetem e reaparecem sob novos ângulos e roupagens na obra de fotógrafos importantes, como Alfred Stieglitz,Walker Evans,André Kertész, Diane Arbus,Nan Goldin.

Descontraído e bem-humorado (às vezes abertamente sarcástico), recheado de imagens, mas também de conclusões inesperadas e comentários perspicazes, bem como fofocas saborosas sobre as perigosas relações entre fotógrafos, O instante contínuo é motivo de prazer constante na leitura.
