The act of photography creates a network where everything continuously and simultaneously interacts and interconnects. Photography is entangled with the agency of the light, the gaze of the technology, the physical touch of the apparatus, the chemical interactions involved in the development processes, and continues through the use of digital technology. Accepting the "intra-actions" and mutual entanglements between human and nonhuman allows us to understand photography as an unending process and refuses to view photographs as only representations, suggesting a relational understanding of photographs' materiality and their cultural, natural, social, and political production.
