This study provides an in-depth analysis of the photobook Topology in Bed published by Taiwan-based independent publisher nos:books in 2015. The project was initiated by artist Son Ni, carried out by her father (Ni Chi-Tsai) at her request, and photographed by Chen Yi-Tang, a photographer and friend of Son Ni; her mother was not involved. The entire project was unfinished until the photobook was completed and Ni Chi-Tsai assumed authorship. This photobook highlights concepts and thoughts in ＂contemporary photography＂ from multiple angles. This study not only adopts a ＂topological＂ view on the ＂staging＂ form of this photobook, but also explicates how its artistic practice expanded the forms of mise-en-scène in photography with reference to psychoanalysis and the history of photography, thereby developing an alternative approach to the staging aesthetics of contemporary photography.
