Summary/Abstract: This article concentrates on the photographic mediation practices by Malvina Jelinskaitė. The characteristic feature of the artist’s creative process is her personal deeply intuitive outlook, her focus on the hidden semantics of the structure of the image. At some point, Jelinskaitė’s photographic practices could be treated as photographic mediation practices, (relatively) based on some mystical dogmas of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, as well as, some ideas of British philosophical realism, such as the ideas of Alfred North Whitehead, and French intuitivism, such as the ideas of Henri Bergson, and some other philosophical and/or aesthetical concepts. I is assumed that some rudiments of these ideas could be found in Jelisnakitė’s performative photography. To summarize, it could be said that all these concepts as well as Jelinskaitė`s photographic practices, are united by the leitmotif of the Neoplatonist philosophical thinking tradition.
