This book contains three essays about the Milgram Re-enactment, a reconstruction of Stanley Milgram's notorious "Obedience to Authority" experiment. They ask what transformation occurs when a laboratory experiment is transferred into a gallery and played out in front of an audience.
There is nothing cool or distant about Zoltán Jókay's portraits. Revolving as they do around themes of intimacy, closeness, and the sense of being touched, both literally and figuratively, his images sometimes seem anachronistic, but that is part of their unique appeal. Jókay's pictures are "self-images": forming a personal visual language, they are a tool through which the photographer can approach his own biography, through which he can understand it and protect himself against it.
