This chapter examines Hervé Guibert's photographic writing. It analyzes texts that reflect the story beginning to be engendered by photographs set alongside the text, first of all without any attempt at integration (Vice), then becoming integrated into the narrative (Suzanne et Louise). The writer then proceeds to another stage in the relationship between image and text in L'Image fantôme in which photography feeds the text while remaining absent from it. The themes are similar to those of La Mort propaganda but worked out in a more polished way.
