Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. V, 1957: Body Image of a Photographer. Henry M. Fox. Pp. 93-107.

The analysis of a man whose hobby and profession was photography is described, and the overdetermination of this vocational choice is made explicit. Photography gratified the patient's voyeuristic and exhibitionistic tendencies; the eroticism of vision substituted for frustrated oral wishes. Photography was a means of achieving active, visual focus on the external world; defensively, it was a way of controlling vision and of re-enforcing difficulties in differentiating inner and outer reality. The camera was also incorporated into the patient's body image.
