Example text

The yearning for a means of copying things in mass quantities, separating them from both their makers and their originals and circulating them ad infinitum, is indissociable from the rise of what Marx calls the commodity fetish. 8 Thus, photography was anticipated not only by lithography, but by silhouette techniques in the eighteenth century when the bourgeoisie was coming into its own. Historians note that, despite economic backwardness and autocratic rule, ‘a clearly articulated industrial capitalism was in evidence [in Russia] by the 1820s and 30s’ (Blackwell 1982: 21), a capitalism which included ‘the formation of an all-Russian market, the beginnings of international commerce … and the use of wage labour in industrial activities’ (Fuhrmann 1972: 258), and that, ‘as early as the end of the eighteenth century, most of Central and North European Russia … became consuming regions’ (Baykov 1974: 9).

1 One of the first settings in which cameras were used in this context was the battlefield, and the first war which produced photographs in large numbers was the Crimean War of 1854–56 which, as Michael F. Braive comments, ‘gave birth to the war reporter and the war photographer’ (Braive 1965: 219). Such photographers were compelled by the complexity of their equipment to adopt a position aloof from the battle itself. This, added to the careful selection of images upon which the press insisted, caused the war simultaneously to give birth to ‘armchair tourism’ which allowed, in the words of a contemporary of the campaign, ‘optical gluttons to feast on the misfortunes of others’ from the comfort of their homes (quoted in Braive 1965: 219).

However, Nastasia’s picture, too, is an Russian realism and the camera 27 indirect vision, an ekphrasis of a Christ that has yet to be realized as image. It is a double mediation. For we learn of Nastasia’s verbal fantasy from a letter read by the Prince, not the intended addressee. Again, Nastasia metatextualizes the dilemma faced by Dostoevskii, who must communicate a verbal imitation of the unique Christ image to his anonymous public. The consumptive, Ippolit Terent’ev, is another character with eschatological insight.
