“Distance Lends Enchantment: Photography and the Dialectics of Space and Time in Graham Swift’s Out of this World (1988)”

This article examines the dialectics between distance and proximity in Graham Swift’s Out of this World. It specifically addresses the relationship between Harry Beech, one of the main characters, and his relatives, namely his daughter and his father, Sophie and Robert, respectively. As a photojournalist, Harry travels around the world; he seldom stays at home. The close proximity he enjoys with the victims of war he photographs, in defiance to his father who is an arm manufacturer, ironically entails a distancing whose effects are often perverse. This results in a paradigmatic pattern in which distance generates transient proximity and proximity reflects distance.
