    Abstract: 攝影作為新潮的藝術形式下,許多研究不外乎著力在兩個分歧的架構:探討攝影的本質,以及由文化觀點定義攝影。根據唯物論的觀點,攝影媒介本身存在某種獨有的本質。藉由攝影的藝術形式表現,該本質將成為對於媒介美感的經驗。另一方面,若干攝影研究探求作品的內容展現文化意涵的方式,並結合不同的學科,將攝影與文化現象產生關連。攝影的本質與文化兩個探討方向對壘分明,我們進而發現形式與內容的矛盾。因此,本文所探討的是:一旦攝影與文學合作,是否能開創一種新的藝術形式,以化解形式與內容的衝突?本論文主要參考德國哲學家華特班雅明的論述,分為三個部分來探討攝影的藝術形式。
    In the history of photography, the discussions of photography have been centered on a sterile formula: nature and culture. The nature of photography suggests that the photographic medium has its own unique property. Such the unique property of photography lies in its self-evident form of representation in relation to the field of aesthetics. On the other side, the investigations of photography focusing on the aspects of cultural content include a great variety of theoretical studies. This formula leads us to further speculate the dichotomy between form and content in photography. Is it possible that a new form of photography, as a genuine art form, involves sociopolitical aspects and is associated with literary products? Divided into three chapters, this thesis intends to explore this new form of photography—photoliterature.
    In chapter one, I will explore the very role of technique in the production of photography. For Walter Benjamin, the sterile dichotomy of form and content in literary products can be surmounted due to the advanced technique. However, the problem of technique, as Benjamin suggests, should be tackled in terms of photographic representation. Besides, the growth of form in photography has the certain relation to the role of technique if we find the form appropriate to the tendency of our time.
    The second chapter concerns the new form in photography, that is, photoliterature, which concludes both photographs and words. First, I will elaborate Benjamin’s call for a written caption beneath the photographic reportage in order to evolve the form of photoliterature that can be politically useful with certain qualities. Second, the characteristic relation between text and image in this form has to be concerned since this form serves as a revolutionary art form.
    The last chapter examines Orhan Pamuk’s Istanbul: Memories and the City as the form of photoliterature. With textual narratives and graphic materials, this novel exposes a melancholic experience peculiar to Istanbul, namely hüzün. For Pamuk, hüzün is not purely derived from a subjective experience of compassion but from the ruins of the fallen city that reflect the political change in the history of Istanbul. For this reason, I intend to show how the relation between pictures and narrative forces us to reflect the changes in the history of Istanbul in this novel.
    Photoliterature, as Pamuk’s Istanbul exhibits the new way of representation, should be considered as a progressive form appropriate to our time. Since the form is proper to the taste of contemporary writers and readers, the traditional notion of fine art form has to be re-examined. Photoliterature that could reflect the political condition of our life has its quality as valuable as traditional art forms.
