Summary/Abstract: The study deals with and analyzes temporal relationships reflected in technical images – still photographs and films. It describes the means of how the visual elements in both, photography and film shot relate to the perception of subjective, artistic and intrinsic time. On the example of the French film / photo-novel The Pier (directed by Chris Marker, 1962), the author of this paper derives the variable temporal relationships, captured in the still image of a single photograph and subsequently as part of a photography series, or in a single film frame, and then within the larger narrative unit sor in other words within the sequences of shots. At the same time, on the examples of the film and in accordance with the theoretical concepts of Gilles Deleuze (1985), the author defines immediate time- image, based on the simultaneity of three implicated presents: a presence of the past, a presence of the present and a presence of the future.
