Blow Up, the cult film of 1966, can also be regarded as an excursus to photography. On the futile search for a proof of the allegedly seen, the fashion photographer Thomas continues to enlarge his pictures and goes thereby to the limits of the possibilities of the medium. Michelangelo Antonioni's milestone in film history revolves around the truth content of perceptions, asks about the manipulability of media reproduction. The publication looks at Blow Up from this photographic angle and examines in detail the positions of the photography and art history of the film and the photographic genres that are represented in it. The photographic stylistic features discussed range from social reporter to fashion photography and pop art to abstract photography. And by the way, Antonioni also discovers the blur as an artistic medium.
