The notion of photographic partition refers to a double meaning of the word "partition". The first refers to the musical composition and its rating system which can rely on readings and interpretations; the second, more specific, is the split, sharing, redistribution (territories for example). From this semantic ambivalence, the concept of photographic partition can be formed simultaneously notation (reserve) and redistribution (not more space but time).
The "Prises de vue" (Shooting / Taking pictures) are for Aurélie Pétrel "zero degree" of the process of appearance of the images indexed dynamics on the partition idea. They are the embryonic phase of an operation (potential) development, a "taking" literal, both concrete sampling and call a becoming (called an appeal taken before a projection, a jump in at come over). A first time before the images, where, previously, the images can be taken (such as in ice, latent). This is what initially containing images power of appearance will be in the exhibition, redistributed, shared in and in a given context, and become secondary time, not just straight, but compound (marked) of double time for transformation. In other words score (Time 1) is played (Time 2) and his playing is marked by doubling its origin and its presentation. The partition function, can be played again replayed so and represent these (its) simultaneous temporalities.
