This would certainly be true if the tendency were toward the positing of what appears in the image as present in person. But we have seen that the conflict between what is 3 The Curious Image: Husserlian Thoughts on Photography 37 represented in the photographic image and the reality surrounding the image ensures that I will not take the subject to be bodily present. Sartre is depicted as standing on a bridge in Paris in Cartier-Bresson’s image, but the photograph hangs on a wall in my house, which has no bridge and is far from Paris.

The being for whom to be is a question. The metamorphosis entails that the phenomenological problematic does no longer operate sub specie aeternitatis in a realm of pure quiddities. It is deliberately historical for several reasons. Indeed Heidegger insists that the word Dasein does not designate an omnitemporal generality but somebody who hic et nunc replies to the question Who? Moreover the analytic of the individualized way of Being of the Dasein discloses constitutive factors called existentialia, such as understanding, discourse, disposition, which operate on two opposite levels: on the one hand, an everyday concern wherein the Dasein pays attention to beings other than itself and publicly available to everybody and nobody in particular, to das Man, the They; on the other hand the level of care in which the Dasein discovers itself thrown in Being among other beings, things and persons, and confronted to the task of taking up its own existence as a project which is its ownmost potentiality-for-Being.

Whereas Heidegger defines the relationship with Being in terms of ownmost selfhood, Levinas affirms the neutral and impersonal character of Being; whereas the former insists on project, the latter argues in terms of a position; on one side the future prevails, on the other side the emphasis is put on the present; on the one hand the key word is ek-stasis, on the other hand it is hypostasis. The divergence is confirmed at the outset of the first chapter of the book when Levinas writes, in a clear opposition to Heidegger: “Existence is not synonymous with the relationship with a world; it is antecedent to the world.
